Rated 2.2 out of 5 by 13 reviewers.Rated 1 out of 5 by Doug7 Seriously damaging I rarely write a review, but after purchasing these felt it was needed to warn of the waste of money and poor quality of these ri blades. The double sided tape is not adequate to keep the blades on the wheels. Both front blades came off within weeks of fitting as I was motorway driving, lashing the front of the car as they came unstuck. One rear blade managed to remove lacquer and paint causing oxidisation on the diamond cut wheel. The damage caused to the wheels necessitated a professional refurb of the wheels. If I could sue, I would. Do not buy these 08 September 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by JonoC Cannot recommend Rimblades Purchased online and collected from Bridgwater store. Opened box to find a large qty of the sticky tape backing had come off. Went on line to look at reviews which are not good in terms of not adhering properly to the wheel rim. Returned to store next day and obtained a refund Also . at £29.99 these represent very poor value. 02 September 2016Rated 5 out of 5 by Qqas Looks Good, easy to fit. I purchased a set of silver rimblades to protect my new Qashqai's alloys. I was a bit dubious because of the poor reviews, but thought I would give them a go. They are an excellent product if fitted correctly. The alloys must be cleaned properly as per the instructions, the adhesive correctly applied, and give them time to adhere firmly. I must confess I didn't use the car for 3 days (pinched the wife's instead), and then only drove at speeds up to 40mph for a couple of days. However I have just returned from holiday and driven 1800 miles and the rimblades are as firm as ever. I even slightly touched the kerb whilst on holiday, and expected the rimblade to be shredded, but no, not a mark. I highly recommend this product, but as previously stated, "make sure they are fitted correctly and given time to adhere." 27 August 2016Rated 1 out of 5 by xbeccixboox waste of money These were my 2nd set purchased. Had them put on by someone who knew what they were doing. They lasted just ONE week!! Travelling down the motorway one just gave in, started whipping the wheel arch. Had to pull onto hard shoulder to remove it fully to stop it doing any more damage to my car. Useless things. They look great. Practicality... ZILCH!! 21 September 2015Rated 1 out of 5 by StupotL Rimblades Have been a customer of Halfords for 40 years and never let down but on this occasion I found the primer wipes to be dry and as a result the protector didn't stick too late to reattach as fell off somewhere along a journey 29 April 2015Rated 1 out of 5 by highlanderstu Good for a cover up. This product is great as a trim feature to brighten up the look of wheels damaged or otherwise but is not substantial enough to use for protection. Fitted these to my driving instruction vehicle from new but didn't survive even the first slight scuff before allowing damage. The material used just isn't strong enough to protect. Once damaged, the fitting seal is broken and due to the ingress of water and dirt, the whole rim edging flew off at speed. 06 April 2014Rated 1 out of 5 by ML73 terrible On line purchase for my brand new Reanult Megane RS,chose red to match the original alloys red band, fit them as stated,by the book,first impressions...rubber strips....surely pointless.? After a week,they look terrible,the brake dust does not come off the rubber,at all. If you do catch the kerb, you have only 1 rotation of "protection" as after kerb contact,the rubber is ripped off the alloy,leaving it open for 2 nd revolution damage. The rim then hangs off,if un noticed,and will,at higher speeds fully pull away front the wheel,and whip down the side of your car ,marking the paintwork...brilliant when the car is a less than a week old. Finally,the mess they leave DOES NOT come off easy with a the alcohol wipe,I know this,as I had to buy a second set...with identical results....grazed alloy rims,with the backing tape stuck on in messy clumps. THESE RUBBER STRIPS DO NOT WORK..TRUST ME..DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME AND MONEY....think about it,rubber strips,stuck onto a wheel..protecting against a concrete kerb..???....impossible.... 22 December 2013Rated 4 out of 5 by Gazza17 Good Product Easy to fit. Blends in with wheels Not able to comment on long term use as only been fitted 1 week 15 September 2013
