THE ORIGINAL STICK ON RIM PROTECTOR THAT STARTED OUR COMPANY IS BACK FOR 2023.
THESE USED TO BE CALLED JUST RIMBLADES® MANY YEARS AGO WHEN WE FIRST STARTED AND ARE OUR OWN ORIGINAL PATENTED DESIGN. AN OFFSET CURVED RIM PROTECTOR THAT IS TRULY UNIVERSAL FITTING AND FITS ANY WHEEL RIM WITH A CONTINUOUS MOUNTING SURFACE. THE ORIGINAL AND FIRST MASS PRODUCED ADHESIVE RIM PROTECTOR AND THE ONE THAT STARTED A GLOBAL TREND.
Brand new tooling for 2023, 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 (deluxe kit).
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 Santoprene by Exxon Mobil, which is from the TPV family of materials, so although technically a plastic, it has the look & feel of a high quality rubber. Santoprene is a very expensive raw material costing triple that of normal plastics. 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 are factory fitted with a genuine 3M Automotive grade VHB (Very High Bond) tape with an orange heavy duty liner.
BOND ON UNIVERSAL FITTING
Due to the unique patented profile, 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 will fit wheels up to and including 24” in diameter.
