Default XL rock guards

Pics of rock guards from ACS composite , From the side you can't tell that they are there. I have an 1/8 mile portion of my road that is stone and dirt before hitting the back roads that are paved.
They blend in very well on a black car.

Why doesn't GM offer thee larger sizes to use? Nice look.

The key is having a black car, pure and simple.

Looks good OP.Black car helps.Believing If you don't look at Flaps and Spats they blend or forgotten.Painting Spats and Larger Size mudguards you do see them more than not painted.
Front Splitters are the same with the poverty and spats blending.Paint your spat ya gotta paint or go larger on splitter.Funny,Pictures show more of these items than actually seeing the blend effect in person.My Opinion.Opinion's Vary
Got my GM Guards at over 14k miles no film,no chips.Liking the Stealth Blend Look.
And yes it's a Wide Body

Good mod for your car and the look good too. Nothing wrong with some extra protection.

Yes, BUT with the black car comes the downside of keeping it looking clean, at my age that's like building my house all over again !
Prior to putting the XL rock guards on with 200 mi. I found 1 tiny "chip" ( my dogs name ) on the pass side before the rear wheel.
