Default Wheel rim protectors

Has anyone fitted these:

car wheel rim protector | eBay

Seem to be three varieties. One is adhesive (Scuffs by Rimblades) and the others push on around the rim (AlloyGators or Rim Ringz).

SCUFFS by Rimblades - Alloy Wheel Rim Protectors / Guards / Tape / Alloy Gators | eBay

AlloyGator Wheel Rim Protectors (Set of4) Various Alloy Gator colours available | eBay

These also: http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alloy-Whee...3D262303964876

I was thinking about fitting these or something like this

IMO the Rim Ringz look good but they're more expensive than I anticipated!

Yes, I like the Rim Ringz the best.

Not too expensive at around £11 per wheel which is far cheaper than having just one wheel refurbished........

...on the other hand....if you want to restore your scuffed wheel rims back to new then this video will show you how to do it:

Nice to watch the scuffs disappear before your eyes.....but if they'd fitted rim protectors then all that work may not have been necessary.....

Okay, my mistake, I thought they were £45 each! LOL
Makes sense now after you said £11, I was wondering why on earth anyone would pay £45 for one bit of plastic!
(Don't laugh at me, I've not been sleeping much lately!)
Thanks for the clarification and I think Iíll get a set

BTW i found this site that say they are the "official" UK dealer..
Shipping is £5 cheaper than the above site but price of the Rim Ringz is the same

Rim Ringz UK

...I note they're both based in York and called Rim Ringz UK.....must have decided to set up a separate place just for these rim protectors.

PS: Good to see you can buy singles of some colours so if you badly scuff one then you just buy a single to replace it.
