BACK for 2022- Red, Black & silver in stock.
The original stick on rim protector that started our company is back. These used to be called just Rimblades® many years ago when we first started and are our own original design. An offset curved rim protector that is truly universal fitting and fits any wheel rim with a continuous mounting surface.
Brand new tooling for 2022, new material, new tape and due to numerous requests for such, we’ve added a joint cover that bonds to the area where they are cut to size for a professional looking finish.
Rimblades® Original 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 good amount of wheel protection against small road debris (flying gravel chips, for example) and parking scrapes.
Rimblades® Original are manufactured from the same grade of flexible hard plastic as our Rimsavers product. Rimblades® Original 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® Original DO NOT have the tape factory applied like our other products that have a flat section where the tape can be applied. If we applied the tape in the factory it would flatten out the curve of the design reducing the universal fitting nature of the product. They were originally designed so the VHB tape is first applied to the wheel and the profile is then bonded to the tape allowing the profile to conform exactly to the rim shape for a PERFECT fit and this re-release is 100% faithful to that original concept.
BOND ON UNIVERSAL FITTING
Due to the flexible nature of the material, Rimblades® Original are conformable to a multitude of different wheel shapes (although they do require a continuous surface). Rimblades® Original require cutting to size during each application, and are supplied in 4 x 2.1 metre lengths and will fit wheels up to and including 24” in diameter. Supplied with Rimblades® wheel cleaning wipes, Rimblades® adhesion promoters and a joint cover kit including adhesive.
Rimblades® Original are flexible and coiled into a strong 2 part box 16 x 16 x 7cm
