Enjoying your car during lockdown
Apr 20, 2020
With most of the world stuck indoors on lockdown and journeys strictly limited to short, essential travel, the time we’re all getting to enjoy behind the wheel has been significantly reduced. All at a time of year when many of us petrolheads would be going to car meets, events or down to the track.
Because recommendations state that cars must be kept safe to drive on the road, some garages are still open for business. However, that doesn’t mean they are open to modify, tune or upgrade your vehicle. Whilst there are no specific rules banning you from driving during this time, you could face a fine if you are unable to prove your journey is for essential reasons. Being booked in for a new sports exhaust and ECU remap is unlikely to cut it with the Police!
However, with much more time on our hands now than ever before, it is still possible to enjoy our cars during lockdown. In fact we think it’s the perfect opportunity to take a pit stop and lavish your pride and joy with a little TLC!
The PERFECT upgrade during lockdown
Rimblades are the enthusiast’s wheel protector designed for drivers wanting to upgrade the performance, handling and looks of their car. It’s also the PERFECT upgrade you could make to your car during lockdown, here’s why:
Quick and easy at-home DIY installation: Our wheel rim protectors simply bond onto your wheel – without the need to modify your car in any way. They do not require professional fitting and can be easily installed (and removed) at home on your driveway or garage.
*Please note that unlike Rimblades, tyre trapped rim protectors really are garage fit, due to the potential that they could come loose and cause significant damage to your car. This is the reason manufacturers of this type of protector have a network of authorised fitting centres.
Immediate visual upgrade for you to enjoy: Whilst you may not be able to actually drive it that much, you can still admire your car, and fitting Rimblades during lockdown will enhance the look of your vehicle instantly. For colour inspiration, head over to our Instagram feed and take a look at some of our customer’s photos we have shared. Also, browse #Rimblades for further inspiration!
Unbeatable Value for Money: Rimblades are probably the biggest ‘bang for your buck’ upgrade that you could make right now, retailing at around a quarter of the cost of tyre trapped protectors whilst utilising higher tech materials costing up to three times more. For a limited period we are also offering a special lockdown discount and NHS donation.
Fit now and enjoy protective benefits later: Fitting a set of Rimblades whilst you have plenty of free time means you’ll be all set to enjoy the protective benefits when the driving rules are relaxed. Rimblades effectively absorb and deflect impacts, whilst maintaining a buffer between objects and the surface of your alloys. After an impact, you have the option of quickly and easily removing and replacing your Rimblades (depending on the damage).
