Mud Plugs/Mud Covers

I have spoken to Bones at OMF wheels, and Scott at Dwt wheels and they both told me that they do not manufacture factory Mud Covers for my front or rear wheels.
I am going to have to make some home grown mud covers.

Come ATV gurus; grace me with your ideas. Please.



This is what im dealing with:






Front wheel





Rear wheel



The whole picture


I want to make mud plugs/ mud covers for front and back wheels. I have been trying to brainstorm on what i should do but haven't had a idea good enough to follow through with. If you have any ideas on materials and attachment points please share them with me. I would like to hear it all.

the front wheels are 10'' and the rear wheels are 11''

You can buy plastic posterboard, that would be cheap. Or you could find the right size bucket or trash can and cut the bottom out of it.

If you were not worried about quick/easy removal, you could silicone them in the rim. If you have enough thread sticking out past you lug nut you could make some spacers that thread onto them and either wing nut or drill a hole crossways in the guard side spacers and use a spring type cotter pin. Custom beadlock bolts(4 per rim) would be sweet, but that would take some work.

If the fronts are 10" then there shouldn't be a problem .(check Ebay)
The rears I would get the OMF fixing tabs that come with regular OMF covers and make something similar to original OMF ones but outta plastic or ali.

You have beadlock rear wheels that have mudscrapers on the outside? I'm refering to the outside of the wheels. I bought wheels without the reinforcing ring on the inside so I could leave my scraper installed.

Thank you all for the ideas so far.

first of all, as asked before, are you going for "somewhat effective yet easily removable" or "super effective and practically semi-perminant"?

Thats going to be a big difference in my ideas

1. Spray the rim with a heavy coat of PAM.

2. Tape cardboard over the face of rim.

3. Cut a small hole in cardboard.

4. Insert tip of expanding foam in hole and fill.

5. Wait 5min and remove cardboard.

6. Spraypaint foam black for bling effect

7. Race quad

i would not recommend the expandi-foam method above. dont know if you ever used that stuff, but certain brands are damn near impossible to get off.

for "easily removable" back- get some dense foam, cut it slightly larger than wheel opening, stuff it in there

honestly for the fronts, i have no idea, dont know anyone that runs mud plugs on front wheels

for "semi-perminant"
back- cut a piece of plastic ( i would use something not completely rigid so you dont cracking it) out the size if the wheel, drill holes to match beadlock bolts, remove beadlock bolts, bolt down ( could run bead of silicone around to make it practically water tight, but i dont see the point as you still have hole around hub.

Front- could do the same thing if those outer bolts are removeable.

hell, you could combine the two, stuff foam in, then bolt on a plastic cover, foam inside would keep some mudd from coming thru around the hub.
