they're just covers to help limit brake dust on your wheels.
do what ever you want with them

If you cut them and bend them into a fan type blade...would it cool your brakes down?

Nothing will happen, the blender will blend the microwaves rendering them useless. Micro-Microwaves..

Steps are as follows.

1. Jack up car.
2. Remove wheel.
3. Remove dust cover.
4. Launch dust cover into neighbouring yard.
5. Replace wheel.
6. Lower car and repeat steps 1-5 for each wheel.

Then slap yourself for asking stupid questions. :wink:
