Brake dust shields

I am interested in the Kleen Wheels brake dust shields. I have the 20" 5 spoke wheels. Does anyone here use them and how do they look? I am worried about UGLY. Thanks.

I'm not a fan of the looks, but aside from that they trap in heat and our calipers don't hold up to heat well as it is. $.02

First off, the brake dust on the Rams, at least my 03 was minimal. Second, more heat, like Richard said, warps rotors, especially ones that are already overheated slowing down 6000lb on 33" tires on 20" rims. Use that money to paint your calipers and get some Powerslots and you will want people seeing your brakes. And you will stop better.
