Rimsavers rim protectors by Rimblades® are designed to add a protective trim ring to the outer edge of alloy wheels to act as a buffer when that inevitable kerb damage does occur. Initially designed as a product suitable for high performance cars, supercars and those that travel at high speeds on a regular basis.
They are the same profile as Rimblades® Light, but made from a stiffer yet lighter grade of plastic that offers more strength from a very thin profile. Once installed, they are tight fitting to the wheel and are like a hard shell around the rim surface.
Rimsavers are made from a near rigid plastic, that if it wasn’t made in such a thin design would appear as a hard plastic. It gets its flexibility from the thin lightweight design profile. Rimsavers are a bond on solution and have a semi-gloss smooth appearance that brake dust wipes straight off. Rimsavers have a stiff fitting guide lip on the top side and the VHB (very high bond) tape is sealed from the weather, brake dust, road salt and wheel cleaners by a sealing lip.
BOND ON UNIVERSAL FITTING
Rimsavers are predominantly designed for the modern flat rimmed wheels common today, but will fit rims with a slight curve if they have a sharp or squared off top edge. They are perfect on most Diamond Cut wheel designs.
Due to the lightweight design, although they use a 6MM wide tape, we have successfully fitted them on narrower flat lips with no issues. Rimsavers require cutting to size during each application, and are supplied in 4 x size to 2.1m metre lengths and will fit wheels up to and including 24” in diameter. Supplied with Rimblades® wheel cleaning wipes and Rimblades® adhesion promoters.
Additionally included in the Rimsavers kit is a set of joint covers and adhesive, so even if you don’t get the cut just right, you can cover where the ends meet.
Note - this is the same kit we offer as an optional extra with Rimblades® Light.
Available in 12 colours.
Rimsavers are flexible and coiled into a strong 2 part box 16 x 16 x 7cm
