I would be afraid that it would be red flag to people to mess with my car. Like putting a big "Don't touch my car" sign out. I can also guarantee that they leave lots of scratches in the clearcoat. Like I said - they are hard, not soft.

I just found of sheet of 3/4 inch foam (used as packing in something i bought) and screwed it to the garage wall where my door edge might hit the wall. Has done a good job for me.

One more thing to remember to prevent dings on your car make sure you park your car right beside nice cars(luxury cars) if you go somewhere. You know some people out there don't give a damn about your car, they just open their doors and lean it on your car. It happened to me a lot of times. Just a simple advice. .
