Tire Deflectors/Spats

I went to a few dealerships and took pictures of the deflectors on different vehicles. Only one salesman was even remotely interested in what I was doing, the rest lost interest when they realized I wasn't buying. These are all on the front tires. No Prius or Insight was available.

I thought the Ford Focus was really interesting. Three deflectors that wrap around the tire!



Full width dam on the Ford Fiesta:


Doubles on the Honda CRZ:


I forget what cars these were, I think Toyotas and/or Subarus:
