    There are places that still do. The common name now is "tire savers", which (I think) was one of the later commercial names for the devices.

    Google has pics:

    Shops usually don't sell them, because most riders who want them make their own out of a couple old spokes and some appropriate-sized rubber tubing.

    --------

    The evidence that they help is rather debatable.

    Sticker FlickR's

    lol... I walked into a bike shop and asked for some Sticker FlickR's... What's that? Time and age befall all.

    I walked out with $24 Kevlar liner inserts. Man, that's heavy duty. I should withstand IED's with those.

    But, anyway... the Sticker FlickR's worked for us tykes back in the '50's. We rode over many bull heads.
