Cooper Stt Rim Protector

Back to article View Gallery
7 of 9
Rim protectors that are situated away from the edge of the rim, such as on this Cooper STT, can still help prevent rubbing the rim against street or trail objects, but really can't be responsible for trapping any dirt between the tire and wheel since the dirt should fall back out just as easily as with a regular, non-rim guard tire. Also, this placement doesn't affect the ability of the tire to hold air or prevent use of clip-on balancing weights.
