How to Protect Your Leased Vehicle's Alloys
Oct 27, 2021
For several years, car leasing has been on the rise in the UK and Europe. It is estimated that over 14% of cars on UK roads are under a lease deal which translates to around 5 million vehicles, quite a large number. As you probably know, when you lease the vehicle, you are not the owner, and you are obligated to return the car when the deal ends, without any damage and with mileage under the limit. Failing to do that will result in a hefty fee since it is treated as a breach of contract, and it is always a costly affair.
This is precisely the problem since if you lease a vehicle and use it regularly for business or private purposes, it will get scratched, bruised, damaged while battling with everyday traffic and the reality of living on the street. Having full insurance coverage might get you peace of mind regarding crashes or theft, but sometimes that coverage doesn't apply to wheels and tyres.
Returning the Car With Damaged Wheels
As most cars are used daily, your leased vehicle will sooner or later have close encounters with potholes and curbs and will likely get chipped wheels with damaged edges or fading paint. While you may try your best to protect them, sometimes it is not enough. If you return the vehicle with damaged wheels after the lease period, it must have the same dimension tyres and wheels without any holes, dents, or scratches longer than 50 mm.
Rimblades to the Rescue
Thankfully, the solution is affordable and straightforward, and it comes in the form of a set of Rimblades rim protectors. As soon as you sit behind the wheel of your new lease vehicle, you should get the edge with Rimblades. If you've leased a car for business purposes and don't want to be flashy, you can opt for a set of grey, black or white rim protectors that perfectly suit the stock rims and go unnoticeable. However, if you want to stand out on the road then we have an excellent range of 12 colour options to choose from - including Red, Blue and Lime Green to name a few!
The great thing about Rimblades is the fact that they can be removed in no time, leaving no residue or any marks, which is essential since leasing companies don't like any modifications and are very strict about any marks on their cars. With Rimblades, you can rest assured that your wheels are covered and that you'll likely save a lot of money down the road on expensive repairs.
