xiiimotorsports Ti bearing shields are designed to reduce heat transfer between brake rotor and wheel bearing. Wheel bearings fail when exposed to extreme temperatures. A majority of the heat comes from the friction caused by brake pad to rotor contact. The rotor dissipates this heat to the atmosphere and other components to which it is attached; wheels and hub which rotate on the wheel bearing.
Titanium will transfer heat 50% slower than steel, providing insulation between brake rotor and wheel bearing reducing the wear on wheel bearings. These shields are designed for use with .050 offset spacers (steel washer) to be used on your brake caliper to compensate for the negative offset of the brake rotor.
