The Throwing Stars do in fact enhance brake cooling like the old turbine-styles. Take a look at the spokes and you will see how. Not to mention they spin in different directions on each side of the car (otherwise it would be much cheaper to make them the same unless you were sacrificing the cooling benefit). The phenomenon is reinforced by how clean my wheels stay after installing the Throwing Stars. There's definitely more air moving and the brake dust does not accumulate as fast.
