Seems like a good product. Definitely not meant for 21' or greater wheels. You really have to take you time and force the shape. I had a set on my Tesla for about 3 months until one of the rails came loose (bead was fine). I contacted the Rvinal and they stated they normally stand behind their product but since I bought it through amazon they wouldn't warranty or replace the 1 band and suggested that i purchase another 4 wheel kit.

One more update: after they saw this review, I was contacted by wheel bands. They were extremely surprised I encountered the problems listed below, and spent a large amount of time to diagnose the underlying issue. They were also extremely quick to make it right, and stand behind the product, including a full refund of the purchase price (as well as offering me another set gratis.)
