Those little spoilers were good for .0003 MPG. Mine are safely stored for a future collector to pay big bucks for. LOL. ;DPeteInCT said:Yea I see it now, "Remove vertical rear tire spoilers at the rear edge of the rocker moldings".
And how many MPG's were they planning on saving ???? ;D

Dig-It said:I melted the deflectors on my LS too. I've also seen or heard of this on a few other Boss's out there.
This may be coincidental, but I noticed that some folks that have removed them are also experiencing rear tire failures in the form of the center tread coming apart in chunks. Could there be too much heat from the exhaust pouring on to the rear tire at prolonged WOT?
Even if the two have nothing to do with each other, I'm keeping my deflectors in. I'm also making a heat shield out of some sheet metal to keep them from melting further.
