Default Zen Mudflaps

Hi Guys,
I had bought alloys for my zen which are causing the front tyres to jut out a little bit, about 3/4 inch - 1 inch. I have recently realized that this jutting out causes slush to be spilled over the lower part of the cars body, which never used to happen earlier.
BTW, mine is 2002 zen. Any suggestions for possible solutions? Can I buy mud flaps of some other car( like esteem) that has wider mud flaps? Did anyone else encounter this problem? how did you guys solve it?

Cheers,
Nitin

You can buy wider mud-flaps from the open market, but make sure that it matches your car's personality !

Hi KPZen,
I am running on the same stock tyres. I bought Neo Alloys that was 4.5J while the stock zen is 4j and the PCD was also different from the stock wheel, hence the protrusion, its not much though(about 3/4 inch) but still good enough to mess the lower part of my car when I go on slushy roads.

Cheers,
Nitin
