Default Latest project...

I installed a set of Kleen Wheels last weekend to help keep the T'stars clean!!

I got them off of Ebay. They were $70 for a set of 4 inc shipping,35 for 2 not inc shipping.I bought 4,though 2 on the front would look off balance.

Watcha' think????

Here'* the discs...

Inside of the drivers wheel after 69000 miles...



Here it is after washing and installing the disc. They are directional so they have to be installed in the rotation direction on the arrow...

Anyone with a drivable car could benefit from that. Would be really good for us with the ghetto golds and the laced silvers to make cleaning a breeze.

Older GA'* have some dust shield integrated into their wheel. It'* nice for cleaning, but you can't see your brakes!

I am curious to see how it effects heat dispersion.

Here'* a link for one of his auctions. The guy I dealt with is named Skip.

http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...category=42614

There was a fit /part# chart to get the # of the ones I needed. I didn't see the link on this auction,so you will have to email him and tell him modle.year and what type of wheels.

yes heat dispersion will be a factor, and im curious to see how that turns out. If it does work, then the Silver Crosslace will benefit form these

it just wont let as much heat. I think the idea is that as you drive down the road the air contacts the rotor and cools it, this might obstruct that air flow....
