    If one keeps their wheels clean and/or uses brake pads that do not produce a lot of dust, there really isn't much of a need for dust shields.

    I think the reason they were put on by the factory was to prevent water from splashing onto the backside of the brake discs since a large enough amount could cause them to warp.

    Mine were 7.5-inchers, of course, but after they trapped a squealing, screaming rock between the disk and the shield for the second time, I chucked 'em.

    Dust shield, fust shield!

    Mine went bad the first year of owning the Rover Dust shield model.....They broke, rusted, rattled, and then got tossed. No worries since. I thought about buying new, then saw the same defects in others "new" parts and decided to abstain. Just sayin'.

    I know 7ent.com has them. I looked at new ones for the clubman when I found one broke but swapped it from one off my cooper.
