These are a brand new and much needed product we are now making. The fins on the 8 lug drums are aluminum, and can be scratched, nicked, or dented very easily by manhandling the wheels and tires. These Safeguard Protectors finally provide a protective cover to guard the fins from damage during wheel installation. Put them on, then when the wheel and tire are finally installed, remove the Safeguard Protectors easily for storage. Made of thick rubber to ward of the blows, and made to fit to the thickness of the fins for perfect gripping and protection.
