Thinking of getting this product for our polo as I've changed the alloys and they real kerb catchers :-s

Has anyone used these or anything similar ?

I wouldn't want any crap colours, they do them in grey. There available on eBay

Dont think they are much kop.

Once the get damaged they will look shoddy.

Careful driving is the answer.
:ympray:

Looks better than other attempts I've seen. If you can get a close enough match to the rim colour would be OK.

Anything other than a close match would look too Halfords :(

They are great for covering up existing marks.

I don't think they offer much protection and will need replacing after an impact.

I would like to see if they are any good, don't think I would ever fit them to my wheels on the zed though. Also I think it depends on the type of impact with the kerb, hit it hard and its likely to still damage the rim and the protector but may work for light impacts.

They have them on Halfords website for 29.99 at the moment which is cheaper then eBay for once :-bd

Mite have to nip up halfords at the weekend..


The wheels are Audi TT Ronal's, the spokes have quite abit of poke and the tyres have no rim protectors so I think I'll give a grey set a try

They look great :ymapplause:

Apparently they are an online offer only from Halfords so you probably won't find them in the store itself. Linky to silver version

Love our little polo. It's getting a few upgrades as late as its our daily and needs to be in tip top shape for when little one arrives :x

It's having some new wishbone bushes tomorrow and new shocks in the next few weeks.. :coolsteer)

Is that an M/// Polo lookalike, Liam!!! :)) :car)
You'll be putting a bigger engine in it next!! ;)
You should be turning your attention to BMW 'Perambulators', nothing less than Estoril Blue, with Plenty of Chrome and extra wide wheels will do!!! \m/
