    if you run air shields do you still run a washer? I am running graphite and this is my first time trying air shields. Thanks in advance

    I'll add a question to this... If you are running fenders, are air shields at all advantageous?

    Yes to both of you.

    Add delrin inside the shields and polish them.

    The shields keep any air from getting inside the wheel, however little it may by, it will keep it a smooth air flow.

    Thanks, I was not sure if the washer was needed.
