Default kleen wheel inserts

Has anyone ever installed these kleen wheel inserts? They are supposed to keep the brake dust off of the outside of the wheels, but they don't seem like they would allow for good air ciculation to the brakes. Are they worth a look?
$70.00 bucks a set seems a bit high.

Thanks!

I bought a set and it was probably the worst money I have spent yet on the vette. They do keep the wheels clean but the vents are inadequate for cooling and they look bad behind the wheel, plus they are a P.I.T.A to get on. Invest your money in spray on brake dust remover at $3 a bottle. :yesnod:

My brakes were squeaking AND dusting so I bought Napa Ceramix brand pads front and rear. No squeaking or dusting!!! $250 was too much cash but the squeaking was making me increase my anti violent medication!!!! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

They are great for keeping the pads nice and hot increasing your stopping distance and liiking like you mounted plastic picnic plates inside your rims. Try instead some kevlar pads, ebc green pads, or some wheel cleaner instead.
