Has anybody installed side window deflectors ?
If so did you go with Kia or Weathertech ?
Being as the Weathertech attach into the window channel would they add pressure to the glass which may lead to my tints peeling at the edges ?

I've got the Kia side window deflectors on my Soul. I prefer the stick-on type, as I had them on my previous KIA for four years and no problem.

I've got dealer installed Kia ones and I am debating getting rid of them. They are a pain in the rear to clean the glass under them and they get swirl marks after the first wash or two.

You don't roll the window down a little to clean the top of each?

Looking to get a pair of these for my 3-door Rio too... I am a bit concerned with how they will look though. Does anyone have a picture of their Rio with these weatherguards? :)

My wife bought me the WeatherTech wind deflectors.
Unfortunately WeatherTech only make them for the front.
They fit fine and look nice as they fit inside the frame as opposed to being stuck on the outside. They are friction fit and don't need tape.
