What are these rings?

What you're looking at is the passneger side, looking forward at the front axle

Now we're behind the wheel....there's a rubber ring just kinda sitting on the axle

and it's identical on the other side!?!?

What ARE these rings? and why are they just "There"?

they were intended to keep dirt from lodging in the axle tubes. #1 they never last, #2 they trap more junk than they keep out
