Bearing Buddy w/hub cover question

I'm trying to add another layer of protection to my hubs by using a cover for my wheels. I've installed bearing buddies on them so I'm not sure if I have the clearance to use something like this.

Anyone use a cover like that w/bearing buddies?

I hear ya on wanting more protection for your bearings.
My thought would be if you could fit an extra layer over your B.B.'s , you would still have the chance for grit to find It's way in past the seal on the back of the hub.

Keeping stuff out of your hubs is always worth it though, nothin sucks more then beating apart heat welded hub parts!!
