Default Stupid Question!

What are those things called on the bottom outside of the footpegs? the things that screw on, and are (i think) supposed to drag the ground first? I want some new ones because i have aftermarket ones on mine and i don't like them, but i can't figure out what to type in ebay to try and find them.

Thanks!

Feelers are supposed to drag on the ground before your foot does when you're "gettin it" in the corners.

On a serious note -- Just looked around and I have read the term footpeg feeler or courage pin.
