Years ago I bought a set, never installed the pair, had narrow W/W tires at that time, and did more parallel parking then. Todays cars sit low and I see many scraping their front bottom fairing panels on parking block stops(that area under the vehicle's chin)gets damaged often. "Whiskers" might help, noise type! Up front.......

Yeah, had them on my 1960 Olds Super 88 Wagon and 69 Pontiac Catalina Wagon and 75 Chevelle Classic esatate wagon. Cars were so big, without them it was hard sometimes, to judge where the curb was.
