That has been a huge debate on some of the other forums. The people that use them are very religious about it and will always use them. The ones who don't use them will never do it.
I only use the rubber grommets on my helis larger than 450. (my 550 and 600). I don't use them on my 450 or 255. So that being said, you will be OK if you do or do not use them.
Some will argue that they provide a bit of extra protection in a crash from breaking the tabs as they provide a bit of give. I can count on one hand the number of times I have broken a tab in a crash, and I'm the crash King!
