At 25 cents/foot and I hardly get any wear on the street based on how they are routed, I can live with that Although I need to get off my lazy butt and take them off when I drive the car on the street, since that is how I had the hose brackets fabricated/installed.

What's so bad about driving with them on the street? dirt buildup? or rubbing? If it's rubbing, is it because of wider wheels/tires in the front than stock?

For me, it is more rubbing. No need to put the wear and tear on the hoses if you don't need to.

Install looks good! How are you routing air from the front of the car?

Default Re: Question About Brake Hoses For DIY Cooling Kit

are u using oem brakes in front? Turner said their backing plates aren't compatible with my Brembos. the Bimmerworld backing plates look a little similar to Turner plates. Is there a reason hou went with Sneed Speed backing plates?
