Alloy Wheel Protection

Protection Against Damage: Alloy wheel protectors act as a barrier between your wheels and potential hazards, such as curbs, potholes, and road debris, reducing the risk of unsightly scratches, scuffs, and dents.

Preservation of Aesthetic Appeal: By preventing damage, wheel protectors help maintain the visual appeal of your alloy wheels. They keep your wheels looking newer for longer, enhancing the overall appearance of your vehicle.

Cost Savings: Investing in alloy wheel protectors is a cost-effective measure. It’s much more affordable to replace or repair protectors than to refinish or replace alloy wheels damaged by road hazards.

Resale Value: Well-maintained alloy wheels contribute to a higher resale value for your vehicle. By using wheel protectors, I can protect this valuable asset, ensuring your car maintains its worth over time.

    What material are AlloyGators made from?

    AlloyGators are made from a super tough nylon which is flexible and won’t damage your alloy wheels during fitting but is tough enough to give superior protection.

    How permanent is the colour?

    Colour runs consistently throughout the wheel protector and is UV stable, meaning that there is wear over time. We recommend you regularly clean your wheels and AlloyGators with normal car shampoo or universal wheel cleaners suitable for delicate finishes like chrome. Avoid harsh cleaners and thick brush-on tyre shines used by some hand car washes.

    Have AlloyGators been tested at speed?

    Our AlloyGators have been tested under normal driving conditions and within the legal speed limit.

    Will fitting AlloyGators affect my insurance?

    AlloyGators are not deemed a performance enhancing product and fitting them to your vehicle should not affect your vehicle insurance premium. That said we would recommend you speak to your insurance company to discuss your own situation.

    Are some wheel and tyre combinations better suited than others?

    Yes, some wheel and tyre combinations do suit our product better than others. Every set of AlloyGators includes a suitability gauge which will be used to determine suitability prior to attempting to fit the product. If you are unsure, please contact us.

    Do AlloyGators affect the inflation of the tyre they are fitted to?

    If fitted correctly, AlloyGators will not affect the inflation of the tyre. We recommend checking your tyre pressures one hour after fitting to ensure correct fitting and at regular intervals as recommended in your operating manual.

    Is there a maximum recommended vehicle weight when fitting AlloyGators?

    AlloyGator wheel protectors are suitable for 98% of alloy wheel and tyre combinations, however, when fitted to alloy wheels on vehicles weighing over 2500kg, AlloyGator wheel protectors may move or come away from the wheel rim. Vehicles weighing over 2500kg put increased pressure on the wheel and tyre and could cause the AlloyGator profile to move over time. For this reason AlloyGator Limited do not recommend fitting AlloyGator wheel protectors to vehicles weighing over 2500kg. This includes vehicles weighting less than 2500kg but carrying luggage or passenger weight that causes the overall vehicle weight to exceed 2500kg. AlloyGator Limited accepts no liability for profile movement or any damage caused by an AlloyGator profile fitted to a vehicle that weighs in excess of 2500kg. This includes vehicles weighing less than 2500kg, but carrying luggage or passenger weight that causes the overall vehicle weight to exceed 2500kg.

    Can AlloyGators be fitted to machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels?

    AlloyGators are not recommended for machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels. Although fitting the product will provide superior protection against kerb damage, due to existing imperfections in the lacquered wheel surface our product may increase the risk of moisture retention and accelerate wheel degradation. Providing there is no minute damage to the wheel surface, fitting AlloyGators should not cause damage on its own, however AlloyGator™ Ltd accepts no liability if the causes the aforementioned damage when fitted to machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels. We do have many customers with machine polished wheels who use AlloyGators for wheel protection.

    AlloyGator Rim Protectors providing superior protection against kerb damage can be fitted to Machine Polished/Diamond Cut alloy wheels, however we would draw your attention to the following considerations when purchasing our product.

    Fitting AlloyGators to Machine Polished/Diamond Cut wheels will not cause damage on their own to the wheel surface and will dramatically reduce the risk of damaging the wheel through kerbing and scratching or denting the lacquered surface through impact. However, if there is existing minute lacquer damage to the wheel surface and AlloyGators are fitted this may increase the risk of moisture retention which could accelerate further degradation of the lacquer. It is not always possible to identify existing lacquer damage and anyone purchasing our product and arranging fitting themselves accepts that AlloyGator Limited has advised of the suitability for fitting the product and that we accept no liability for any damage caused to Machine Polished/Diamond Cut wheels when our product is fitted.

    If you are purchasing your AlloyGators as a fitted item, you accept that you have been made fully aware of the suitability conditions in fitting our product to machine polished/diamond-cut wheels by the fitting outlet. All trade partners listed on our website will have received full training, which includes instructions on fitting the product to machine polished/diamond cut wheels. As part of the suitability checking process the qualified fitter will ask all customers to sign our standard confirmation form agreeing that such conditions have been fully explained before any work is undertaken.
