It is a hardened piece of rubber which is mounted to a bracket . Then you mounted above your axle to the frame limiting tire movement all the way up inside the fender well so no rubbing

Do you have a problem with rubbing?

If so it sounds like you have other issues.
Overloaded?
Weak springs?

hum, thanks for the info. We have had no issues with tires rubbing the wheel well. Have towed our high wall PUP just about 12,500 miles in 4 years and the tires still look new.
