I had a set on my Colorado (OE) and popped one of the rear ones once when I backed into deep snow, but it had those plastic push pins so I was able to push it back on. They looked ok on that truck, I'd love to put them on my silvy, but I don't think they would look good.
Steve, had these on since '08. Never had a problem with snow
x3, mine has the vinyl too....
Just had to jump out and look. No paint damage, theres a clear vinyl wrap behind all wheels.
