Rakundig,

These plates also catch a little more air for cooling. They are bent out just a bit, like a scoop, so air will blow over the rotors. If you have solid steel wheels like the originals which were for drum brakes or wheels like the old centerline's that do not have any openings through them, I would install the plates so you don't over heat the front pads and end up with "brake fade".
