Wind/Rain Guards

There are so many brands out there, which look the best and are of the highest quality. Do they really direct the wind away from the driver at high speeds with the window down. I really like to drive with the window down but it gets aggrivating with the wind hitting me right in the ear.

I will take more notice today about the wind in my ear when driving today with my Lund's. I have the lower profile, in-channel ones. I like them a lot, for cracking the windows in the rain while driving/parking. Cost like $33

Same here. Make sure you get the ones that go IN the window channel, not stick on the outside of the door. They are great.

I have a set of AEV or AES something like that I picked up at Advanced Auto Parts and they are in channel ones. They are amazing and for the cost it is nice to leave your windows cracked when it rains. Not sure about the noise factor with window open because I only usually drive at higher speeds with the sliding window open because I don't like the wind noise.

This is amazing. I was gonna post the same question about these. Now I guess I have to get some. I am thinking about the ones from Weather Tech. They seem a little better looking than the others. Any one have the ones from Weather Tech?

Thanks


George

The in channel ones are great. They keep out rain and still allow some air to circulate. I love mine.

Thanks,
Jason

I installed my in channel AVS guards back in march of 2001, there held in by 3m tape. they are still intact after thousands of automatic car washes, and cold winters, no breaking, cracking or fading.

Yeah these things should come factory on all vehicles. I had them on old truck and after reading this thread am surprised I haven't put them on my new one yet. Gonna have to fix that. Definetly get the in-channel ones as I had to other kind on last truck and they don't look as nice.
