Brake shield collecting stones..

Does anyone else have issues with the rear brake shield picking up (and hanging onto) small stones? Quite often, when I back out of a parking space or my garage... it sounds like I'm dragging beer cans.. Pul back and forth a few times and he stones find their way out...

Nothing like backing out of a space at a restaurant/bar/golf course and having you car sound like you bought it at the local buy here/pay here lot..

Thoughts?

All the bloody time. Sounds like absolute crap.

Some have suggested bending the shields inwards a bit, but I haven't gotten around to see if its feasible.
