I've never liked this sort of thing, and i still don't

I find avoiding kerbs is the best way of protecting my wheels. They also end up looking a lot better that way too. :)

Make sure you take some pics to show us when you've fitted yours.

Im in two minds about these - I would love to see what they look like fitted though. Im paranoid about any kurb-related incidents!

Seeing as two of my alloys have a tiny bit of snow related kerbing and one of them has a fair bit of carelessness related kerbing I am seriously considering getting these, even though I don't think they look that great.

Wouldn't those make the wheels very unbalanced and shaky unless you get the position 100% right?

£29 notes for these! I think I would rather take my chances and put the £29 towards having my wheels refurbed if I curb them as oppose to having these rottern things on my alloys
