    Can anyone provide feedback on the Wheel Bands Kit from Evannex, specifically on the 22" wheels? Are you happy with the level of protection, visual looks, etc. Thanks.

    Yes, yes, and yes. You can find my pictures in the black X section. I just completed a 500 mile trip and they were rock solid.

    Check out this thread: Aftermarket X'ccessories

    Thanks, yea I saw that thread earlier but didn't realize it was for 22" wheels.

    They look good, I will pull the trigger. If they work well then $30/wheel is a bargain.

    was going to ask about this, as i had a MSP90DL this weekend while i wait to pick up my X and notice curb rash on the rear drivers side wheel and it just looks soo bad on such a beautiful car...so good to hear about this.

    Also, will this be all good for going through a car wash?

    Ok, but did you actually rub up against any curb to see if they prevent damage? To me it looks like an option that won't help protect the rims in most rim rubs.

    I ran it through one high pressure wash prior to my Xpel being applied. They stood up just fine.

    The short answer is NO. I did not intentionally try to rub up against a curb.

    However, I have seen video on Wheel Bands' website of such a demonstration.

    Ok, I wasn't suggesting you do it on purpose :) Just curious because when I look at the Tesla wheels up close and looked at one with those wheel bands on them, it seemed to be there more for looks and wouldn't protect the rim from a curb rash. Best of luck that it won't happen;)

    hoping this would help for the commercial car washes that drag the car along a track...

    I have thought about doing this as well. I am the only everyday driver of my S and do NOT hit curbs. But my wife and son have used it at times and I suffer from anxiety when they have my S. :( I was told these could come off while driving and damage the car. Has anyone had this or maybe it's just a case of putting them on the right way.
