You will get a lot more crap lodging between the fender and body, but it will be easier to clean out.

i run my gutted car with no splash guards in front or back. as Bruce said more stuff will get caught in the fender but easier to blast out with a hose

Fender liners? They make good wall ornaments in the garage.

How are you supposed to fit 275s, if you have fender liners in the way?
