Chrome Door Handle covers?

Anybody ever used them? Do they stay on good? Do they look bad? I just won some pretty cheap off ebay and was just wondering if anyone had some thoughts about it. I know it's the cheap way to go but forgive me i'm broke lol.

Afterthought: I didn't get the tailgate cover handle! Hmm wonder if that will look dumb..... Oh well here is to impulsive Ebay bidding!

Chrome plastic ones don't last long. They get scratched after so long, then start peeling. The billet aluminum ones are a lot better. We have both available.

I have had Putco door handle covers and Tailgate H\handle cover for almost 5 years and still look great. Been through lots of car washes and 2 paint jobs, still on and no plans to replace them any time soon.

Putco is probably the best out there. There chrome seems to hold up better than any other manufacturer.

Just make sure to clean the surface very well and alcohol wipe before Install should last along time
