Question What rim protectors on banded steels?

Getting my bandies going on soon (currently in the loving care of uncle Colese) - and gonna have a naughty bit of rude stretchypoo on the tyres.

Now the... I'd love some 16" stainless steel embellisher/beauty rings but they be bloomin' expensive! So then I thouhgt, some contrast colour rim protectors for a flash of colour on the edges and hopefully help protect the precious power coat a bit.

But even this option seems to vary lots in product and price. So far looking at these options:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RIMBLADES-...item3386718e58

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Alloy-Whee...21233452343%26

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/AlloyGator...item23301e7042

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/RIMBAND-AL...item5d44885029

Rimblades, Rimbands and Alloygators all seem much of a muchness are they? The Rim Ringz seems a more substancial productc... just wondering how these would sit on a steelie rim with stretched tyres though.

Anyone got any knowledge or opinions?

Cheers all

Don't buy rim blades they are rubbish and fall off, I have heard good things about alloy gators though
