These work ok but they could be made longer and the material used is a bit to soft. Overall they worked as advertised.

- If you own tire irons, then you should own a set of these inexpensive protectors.
- Slip them between the wheel and tire to avoid expensive and ugly damage to your wheels.
These are great for protecting your wheel rim. I wish it came with three instead of two.
They are easy to install and protect your rim as you are taking your tire off the rim. If used with good lubricant, getting the tire on and off the rim is a piece of cake.
Definitely a "Must Have" if you mount your own tires, especially on aluminum Mag Street Wheels, really helps avoid scratches and such during mounting.
Dont expect them to last long. They work great once you learn how to work with them. I had to ditch them once i got close to the end of the tire bead because they did not allow enough wiggle room for the tire to finally pop into place on the rim. protected about 90% of the wheel from horrible scratches otherwise. You will probably need a new set each installation though. only bad thing about this product...
Good product, works well, but maybe not needed.
I used these when swapping out tires on my cbr. I did both front and back they did tear a little bit but definitely saved my rims. Could probably get one more use out of them on my dirt bike before they are trashed. Would buy again.
These protectors worked very well, held up for 2 tire changes with no damage to rim. Take your time and dont try and force the tire on.
Too thick and cant get the tire to pop over the rim protector when trying to flip the bead. Useless to me, just have to take extra care not to scratch my black excels.
These worked good. They are a bit to thick to mount the last %20 or so. Had to complete tire mount with just spoons and not protector. Very good construction though. Rubber not plastic. Next time I'll use milk jug pieces for the last %20 and this product for the rest.
Bought these to not scratch my new Warp9 black wheels. Tried to use them and they just got in the way. Ended up slipping one time and put a nice small scratch on the rear rim. Nice idea, but a one piece design would work better. I've used the one piece ones to mount car tires before with good results
