I run fenders close to the tires to keep spray down.
But, I have shattered a cheap pair of fenders doing this. The tire carried up a jagged piece of ice and when it hit the fender in very cold weather, it just exploded. Nevertheless, I need to fenders to do what they need to do, so I guess I have to take that risk.
