Motion Pro Rim Protectors
Did what it needed to do
As the title says they do what they need to do which is protect the rim. They flew off sometimes at times when removing my stock stiff tire so ended up with a few scratches, so patience is still required.

The only thing I wish is that I bought 2 sets, because on the tire I was working on, I needed more than 2 protectors. If they are pinched by the tire you can't easily move them. Great product.

The last brand of Rim Protectors you'll ever need
Like any special tools, you'll have to learn and understand what you can and can't do with these rim protectors. Overall, the materials used in this product can take the beatings from a novice user. This product exceeds my expectations to protect the rims of your motorcycle when replacing a tire or an inner tube!
I have NO direct relation with this company. This review are based from what and how I used this product.

More durable than expected
Have used these rim protectors twice and am very happy with them. Thought the plastic might be too soft for the abuse of the tire irons, but they hardly show a scratch. Only concern is they are very tight on the rim. Hard to pull on, then hard to remove. Might just be the heavy wall rim on my Guzzi. Do not seem to interfere with the tire going over them.

Good Rim Protectors.
After picking up one of the new digi-camo KLR650s with black rims, I decided to buy the Motion Pro Rim Protectors to prevent the inevitable scratches and gashes from changing tires. First use, these rim protectors worked like a charm. I'm going to buy another set because I like to use three points with my spoons. Simple to use, effective and cheap. What else is there to say?

Stays in place & durable
My first time changing my own tires so i bought a few tools including this and the Motion Pro Rim Shield II. There are pros and cons for both and I'm glad i had both kinds available during my tire change. This product snaps on and stays in place which was especially helpful when trying to get the new tire on. It was not easy to move around the rim though. The other product I mentioned earlier was easy to move around but didn't stay in place as well. Both stopped my rim from getting scratched.

Helped save the rims from some unnecessary cruelty during a tire change :).

Work but not the best option
These work, but because of how thick they are makes the bead even harder to get on. They do protect the rim well.
