    Hey everyone. I am looking into getting some weather deflectors for my windows. I was looking at JCWhit and found a pretty good selection. What have you guys used? The 3M tape ones or the ones that fit in your weatherstripping? What is a good brand? I have never bought any of them so I figured I would get some help from the professionals to make my decision. Thanks!

    I had AVS (Auto Vent Shade) ones on my sierra and they were great. the tape held up great and they stuck on there very strongly

    Thanks for the reply! I was wondering how the tape would hold up. I mean the deflectors are going to be subject to a lot of wind resistance but 3M does make good products. Do you think they were worth the money? Also I saw that some of them were ABS plastic while others were acrylic. Any suggestions on which of the two is better?

    I have the 3M tape ones and they work great. Never had any problems. They dont rattle or make any noise.

    I had a set of AVS window visors on my previous truck and they were great! I just ordered a set of visors from Putco today for my truck. Most of the other brands wanted almost $100 for a set because I have a crew cab. These were $45.90 shipped for all 4 pieces. I'll post updates when I get them. Hopefully it's not one of those "too good to be true" situations.

    I never had a problem with them falling off or making any noise. they were great tho, especially in the rain cuz you could have the window cracked. they also do help alot with the sun as well. And yes the tape is strong as hell. When i got my cherokee it had a set of them on there. I didnt like the look of them on the jeep so i took them off, but geeez was it a pain. they were on there really well.

    AVS deflectors

    I have the AVS window deflectors on mt 2005 Tahoe. They are holding great. I have heard bad things about the in channel deflectors. They mess up your sills after time and scratch your windows.
    I also have a wind jammers on the rear glass that is applied with 3m tape.
    JC Whitney is a good place to get some things. Just check your local auto parts store to compare prices.

    I'd be concerned about the ones that go in the channel. I've seen some reviews with folks having problems. Falling off, causing issues with the window going up/down, etc. They do look a whole lot better than the ones that stick to the outside of the door though.

    But do you guys have any wind noise issues? Or do they perhaps help reduce wind noise? Anybody take a wind noise measurement before/after with a sound meter? :)
