How to Avoid Alloy Wheel Rim Damage
Apr 23, 2021
Car wheels have two specific purposes. The first and the obvious one is to make the vehicle move, turn and stop. The second purpose is to make it look good. It goes without saying that alloy wheels are the single, most effective visual enhancement to any vehicle on the road. It is pretty incredible how you can completely transform the look of a car with just a set of wheels. That is why manufacturers always try to offer unique designs, but aftermarket companies try to top that with their own styles.
Damage Sometimes Can’t Be Avoided
Alloy wheels are vulnerable and prone to damage. Not just from potholes that lurk on every stretch of the road but also from scraping, chipping, road debris, or kerbs. In fact, many everyday scenarios will result in damage done to your rims. The most common type of damage is “kerb rash” that occurs on vehicles driven primarily in urban areas. The edge of the alloy wheels gets chipped and damaged from scraping the kerb. Of course, you will do your best to avoid any damage, but sometimes it is beyond your control.
Since the modern tyre and wheel combo consists of a larger diameter rim and lower side profile rubber, it means that your precious and shiny rolling stock is exposed to damage as soon as you leave your garage or drive. If you love your car and you are proud of its appearance (like most of us driving enthusiasts) it understandably makes you very anxious. So, how to avoid alloy wheel damage and keep your rims looking as good as new?
The solution for all alloy wheel problems comes in the form of Rimblades. We created it as an affordable, easy to install, and convenient wheel protection solution. Rimblades come in five different versions according to the design of your alloys and the level of protection desired.
All Rimblades products are designed to absorb damage and protect the wheel, and since they are so light and adjustable, they will not affect the wheel balance or driving dynamics whatsoever. Of course, since there are numerous types and sizes of alloy wheels on the market, we offer various sizes up to 22-inches in diameter, which covers almost all types of passenger and off-road vehicles. You can order your Rimblades set in several colours - making them ideal not just for protection but for covering existing damage and instantly upgrading your vehicle aesthetic.
Easy To Install
One of the best features of our products is the fact that they are easy to install. There is no need for any specific tools, no previous knowledge, and you can do it practically anywhere. All you need to do to “Get The Edge” is to bond the Rimblades protector around your alloy and position it between the wheel and the tyre. It takes just 5 minutes per wheel. Removal is equally as easy and there will be no damage to the wheel paint or finish - making them perfect for leased vehicles.
