    so I have a 2016 platinum 100% stock. when it had like 3000 miles on it I noticed my right rear mud flap had rubbed on the tire and cut it into the shape of the tire tread. so I figured I must have backed into something and pushed it up into the tire. I ordered one from the dealer for $40 and replaced it. now I have 7000 mile on truck and the same one is tore up again. the tail pipe is right there and it has no marks on it so pretty sure i am not hitting anything. Any Ideas???? Can't keep buying $40 mud flaps

    No idea, but I would let the dealership figure it out since it is under warranty.

    I have the same issue on the left, but figured mine out. The car wash I used caught the flap just right to fold it onto the tire and chew it up(tailpipe blocks it on the right). There is a Tundra I see at the gym, and same car wash a few times, his looks just like mine. It seems like most of the plastic, mudflaps, wheelwell liners, etc. is thinner/flimsier than my 2012.

    Mine got damaged from my exhaust. I just left it and didn't bother replacing it.

    It's weird. Dealer will just blame me. Might have to look for some nice moulded ones factory ones are too flimsy.

    Is it bending back and getting up against the hot tail pipe? I just took a look at mine and bent the mud flap back and that is where the contact would be with the tailpipe...

    In California, it's a ticket if you don't have mud flaps.

    I would be tempted to try taking a couple of pieces of metal and attaching to the inside of the flap to keep it from bending backward into the tail pipe.

    This is my rear left side. No exhaust on that side. My right rear is in perfect condition. Weird.

    That is weird, Michael. So much for my theory..... Are you familiar with the short mud flaps that attach to the front bumper? They are mounted to the front plastic with two thin metal strips on the inside that the 2 bolts are threaded into. I was wondering if you couldn't get something similar and mount to each side of the rear mud flaps on the inside. If you were to put them the full length of the flap, it might give them more support and keep them from bending backward so much. But, what do I know? All of a sudden I'm MacGyver....

    Not going to worry too much about them at the moment. May just take them off. But then again, the next time I drive down a gravel road I'll be like:annoyed:

    So will the car behind you!!

    Hmm here's a crazy idea....get an inch wide metal strip run it down the inside of the flap and rivet it in place (spray it black to blend in). Would stop any bending either way.

    Haven't seen this on mine yet BUT if you want to remove it then DO IT NOW. I removed the flaps from my Taco after owning it for 2 years and the flaps ATE into the paints......

    I'd line x my whole truck if I didn't like the shine!

    Sometime down the line when I can afford a toy to beat up, that'll be the first thing on the docket!!

    Mdavis is like what my passenger one keeps doing. Somehow they are flipping forward into the tire. At least I'm not the only one. I was looking at getting the weather tech mudflaps. Hopefully better than oe. Achuop definitely going back into tailpipe

    That is strange. Only thing I can think of is backing up into a curb and the curb bending the mud flap into the tire. Then when you drive forward, it's getting caught on the tire and rubbing the shit out of it.
