    wheel masking covers

    I was wondering if anybody knew of a good place to purchase some masking covers for the entire wheel/tire ?
    t
    I would prefer the plastic disposable ones , but would be willing to go with the cloth masking covers that are reusable as long as they are soft enough not to marr up clearcoated wheels.

    Any advice ? I saw some sources when i google searched them, but there was very little information or reviews on the products and information on sizing was very limited.

    I would like to use them in a pretty standard car size. Something with 17 to 20 inch wheels (not including tires).

    I was curious what some of you professionals were using.. and where to purchase them.

    ,

    I think Nick is working on a source for these for Autogeek as I have guys PMing me and e-mailing me all the time about them.

    The canvas wheel maskers are really the way to go as you can reuse the over and over again, (being green and all that), and they're not going to scratch any wheels unless you whack the wheels with them.

    I share 4 reasons to use these in my detailing boot camp class so I highly recommend getting a set.
