Looks like kinda tight, like it might 'grip/squeeze' cables.

Throttle cable outer housing is .243", or 6.1 mm, and that for only about 5 inches, then the 8 mm protector takes over, so they wouldn't be of much use there.

The average uncovered dash 3 braided stainless brake line is just over 6 mm as well, but when the covering is taken into account they grow to .285", or 7.25 mm. National Aerospace Standard specifies no metal midline clamp for braided lines without some sort of elastomeric cover to prevent the braid from biting into the inner liner, possibly causing weak points, leakage, or outright rupture, so these clamps should not be used for that application either. xrmikey's clamps do not firmly hold the lines, just provide direction and a small amount of float to allow movement. While they aren't up to NAS standards, they are perfect for this application, especially for the coated lines.

While the clamps advertised may look "trick" to some, they don't really have a use, especially for $17 each.

If it has already been done, it is safe to assume it is possible to do it.
On the other hand, if it has not been done never assume it is impossible to do it.

Either wait, or run a 7.5mm bit thru them.
Check out Little Machine Shop.com for odd size bits.
