History

Rex-Hide Incorporated began by manufacturing shoe products and various molded goods in a small town in western Pennsylvania in 1917. During World War II, Rex-Hide was asked by a tire manufacturer to produce a “truck tire flap”, which is not the same as a mud flap. The tire flap is an integral part of a tube type truck tire and protects the tube from chafing, heat, and protrusion from the valve hole. Rex-Hide became the only independent producer of truck tire flaps in the United States and at the time marketed its product strictly to tire manufacturers. After 1960 most tire producers discontinued manufacturing their own flaps and began relying exclusively on Rex-Hide. Rex-Hide now sells not only to tire companies but to the defense industry and antique car dealers around the world.
