Default Rim protection

Hello guys, I have a question. I have 18' porsche rims on my 2006 golf tdi, now I try not to scratch them but I guess that just happens some times. I love my rims and I have found this rim ringz protectors. I guess I should not post the links, so if any one can tell me are those rim ringz any good? I ordered them over their web site for 50$ almost a week ago and they will be here tomorrow. Its my bad I didn't ask first. So... Thank you for replays.

Well, they should protect you from damaging the rim with minor curbing. The bast way to protect them is to not park so close to curbs. In most states, you only have to be within a foot of the curb. Also might consider tires with that rim lip on them.

I look out so much not to scratch rims, I have my current ones for all most two years, and in last six months it just happened a couple of times. I got 18' porsche rims, and I don't have money to fix them every three or six months. I just got rim rings, actually called Rim Ringz I will post photos when I instal them.
