BEST rim protectors PART DEALS MINIMUM EFFORT!

rim protectors


One of the issues for having alloy wheels fitted to your car or van is that the rims are vulnerable to damage such as scrapes and scratches should you park too close to the kerb so you may be requiring rim protectors. Here we will explain more about what rim protectors are.

What are alloy wheel rim protectors?

For anybody asking, 'What are alloy wheel rim protectors?' then they are essentially a strip of flexible material - either rubber or tough plastic - that will fit along the alloy wheel´s edge. Some of these alloy wheel protectors have a self-adhesive strip and will be stuck over the wheel's edge while other wheel rim protectors will slot between the tyre and the wheel. The alloy wheel rim protectors have been designed to protect the edges, or the rim, of your alloy wheel. Usually, they will cover the edges, while other rim protectors have a slight protrusion that will take the impact of the vehicle coming into contact with the kerb.

Idea behind rim protectors

The idea behind rim protectors is that should you scrape the kerb by accident than the protector will get scratched and not the alloy wheel which can be expensive to repair and the scratches will make the wheel look scruffy. It helps that rim protectors are available in a range of colours with silver rim protectors helping to make alloy wheels look wider while black protector rims help to make the tyre look larger. These protectors are also available in other bright colours to help the alloy wheel stand out. The most expensive rim protectors tend to be made of a tough nylon and slip easily between the tyre and the alloy wheel. Usually, these will need a professional to fit them which can add to the cost of the protector but they also tend to be more durable because they are not relying on adhesive to remain in place.

Type of rim protector

As mentioned, the other type of rim protector is the self-adhesive type and these are cheap and can be fitted at home. They also tend to be made of rubber, so they won't absorb as much damage as the plastic types do. The self-adhesive rim protectors come in various types which will depend on the shape of your alloy wheel, so they will either be curved, rounded or have a flat edge. It's always worthwhile checking what kind of alloy you have and then getting the suitable rim protectors before fitting them, though if your alloy wheels have a paint or lacquer finish, or you have fitted diamond cut alloy wheels, then rim protectors are not recommended. It´s always a good idea to have a professional do the work so the rim protectors do the job effectively.
