They're called Wheel Maskers and I get mine a our local PBE store. Haven't seen the ones Pat mentioned at HF so I can't comment but the ones I use are a sturdy canvas with a wire ring in the back to hold them snug to the tire. Wheel Maskers
Wheel Maskers are canvas covers with a piece of mild steel rod sewn into the rear perimeter and then placed over wheels and tires to protect them from splatter. I use them for almost ever car I buff out. Get Creative
If you donít have canvas wheel maskers you can make them from large lawn and leaf plastic bags. Iíve even made them using newspaper. Saves Time
