As I said above, "I did not like the ides of gluing these to the rims more or less permanently." So I chose the one with the tabs.


There is another product out there that requires the tire to be taken off, rings installed and then remounted by a professional shop. IT looks better, but seemed like to much trouble and money for a sacrificial product.
I thought the one with the tabs had to have the tires deflated to be put on?

IMO, I'd say yellow, so that the red calipers can give that accent to the car.
Iím leaning toward yellow...

Yes, but not removed from the rim and then remounted by a tire shop like the other product. I can not recall what the other product was called.
