That plate frame would do nothing to the car that backs into you because they will hit the bumper first and won't reach the plates, unless they are going at 60 MPH and they rear end you. Nay for me.

but how would they hit your bumper first if the plate is the outer area that sticks out? thats why i put them in the front plate only...when they back their car up while parking...wouldnt the spikes damage their rear slightly?

I think YOU should put them on.

It's how you learn :P I've had lots of mods go on the car and back off after a couple weeks.

I hope this is a joke. That won't protect anything if you had it on your front plate either. So no I don't like it.

Yikes! Personally I wouldn't do it. I like keeping things slick & clean
