Rimblades® Ultra are manufactured from an extremely lightweight material for reduced rotational mass.
Ultra’s are a great value product designed to offer alloy rim protection from light kerb impact at parking speeds and additionally as a colour trim ring styling upgrade or to cover existing damage on your alloy wheels. They also offer a medium amount of wheel protection against small road debris (flying gravel chips, for example) and parking scrapes.
Rimblades® Ultra are manufactured from Santoprene by Exxon Mobil, which is from the TPV family of materials, so although technically a plastic, it has the look & feel of rubber. Santoprene is a very expensive raw material costing triple that of normal plastics. Rimblades® Ultra have a thin wire core running through the centre of the profile to prevent the wheel rim protector from ever stretching or shrinking due to extreme temperatures. Rimblades® Ultra are factory fitted with a genuine 3M Automotive grade VHB (Very High Bond) tape with an orange heavy duty liner.
Bond On Universal Fitting
Rimblades® Ultra have a flexible fitting guide lip on the top side to aid perfect installation. Due to the flexible nature of the material, they are conformable to a multitude of different wheel shapes (although they do require a continuous surface), but are best suited to wheels with a reasonably flat mounting surface. Rimblades® Ultra require cutting to size during each application, and are supplied in 4 x 1.9 metre lengths and will fit wheels up to and including 22” in diameter. Supplied with Rimblades® wheel cleaning wipes and Rimblades® adhesion promoters.
Rimblades® Ultra are flexible and coiled into a strong 2 part box 16 x 16 x 7cm
