I upgraded my '89 model from fan to throwing star. Please double check that the covers fit. Even though they have the SAME part numbers at least the '89 wheels are different to the later ones so the throwing stars do not fit and you have to buy the whole wheels which is about 5 times more expensive (i did it nevertheless...)

At least the '89 rims are different to the later ones (referring to raymond they changed the layout in '90) even though they have the same part number...
