These didnt last a full tire change. The plastic is so soft that the tire irons cut through once you put pressure on. The pull string will also rip through the eyelet if you put any pressure on and they are a pain to move around the rim during install/removal. The blue ones from motion pro have worked better and lasted way longer.
These work ok but they could be made longer and the material used is a bit to soft. Overall they worked as advertised.
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.
