RIMBLADES® LIGHT ARE MANUFACTURED FROM AN EXTREMELY LIGHTWEIGHT MATERIAL FOR REDUCED ROTATIONAL MASS.
Light’s are a great value product designed as a lightweight rim protector offering the lowest level of protection in our range, but still a great product as they have the lowest rotational mass, so are very easy to install and are great for covering up existing marks on a wheel. They also offer a reasonable amount of wheel protection against small road debris (flying gravel chips, for example) and very light parking scrapes.
The new 2023 version of Rimblades® Light 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® Light 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® Light 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® Light 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 a flat mounting surface or those with a gentle curved edge. Rimblades® Light require cutting to size during each application and will fit wheels up to and including 22” in diameter.
