The covers keep the wheels clean the ventilation comes from the air circulation around the brakes themselves.

Do not use that shit bro. I have a set and have closely examined them and they block a lot of the airflow to the pads. It can lead to brake fade and disintegrated pads. Not worth it

Re: caliper covers

Oh no.. I dont want that to happen! is there any way to modify them to get more ventilation to it? that was my main concern when I bought them.. I asked someone that has a body shop and he said that I probably need to cut some areas to let the air flow? not sure where exactly.. what kind of vehicle/ wheels do you have?

have you personally installed these? I want to make sure it doesnt affect the air flow and create more damage than good..

Re: caliper covers

I cant even believe this thread is 8 pages of people who either have bought or consider buying these covers. The covers trap heat which could cause the caliper and components to fail prematurely. Not to mention how cheap they make you and your Jeep look.
