What material are the rim protectors made of?

The AlloyGator product is made of a “Super Tough Nylon” which is flexible and wont damage your alloy wheels during fitting, but tough enough to give superior protection.

How Permanent is the Colour?

Consistant colour is maintained thoughout the product, which means that the colour is fully maintained after damage has been rectified. We recommend you regularly clean your wheels and AlloyGators with normal car shampoo or universal wheel cleaners suitable for delicate finishes like chrome. Avoid the harsh cleaners and thick, brush-on tyre shines used by some hand car-washes.

What is the fitting method?

The AlloyGator is locked to the wheel over 360° using highly robust patented technology. If you choose to fit them yourself then there are videos online, alternatively let one of our trained fitters do the hard work for you.

Have they been tested at speed?

They have been tested under normal driving conditions and within the legal speed limit.

Can they be used on run-flat tyres?

Yes they can be used on run-flat tyres, view our gallery to see cars already fitted with AlloyGators on run-flats.

Are some wheel/tyre combinations better suited than others?

Yes some Wheel tyre combinations do work better than others. View the gallery close up photos to see what wheel/tyre combination work best. Please contact us if you would like further clarification on your own wheel and tyre suitability.

Can they be re-used if you have new tyres?

Yes they can be re-fitted to the same wheels if you have new tyres.

Do they affect the inflation of the tyre?

If fitted correctly they will not affect the inflation of the tyre. We recommend checking your tyre pressures 1 hour after fitting to ensure correct fitting and at regular intervals as recommended in your operating manual.

Can AlloyGator be used on Machine Polished/Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels?

The “AlloyGator” alloy wheel rim protectors are not recommended for machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels. Although fitting the product will provide superior protection against kerb damage, due to existing imperfections in the lacquered wheel surface our product may increase the risk of moisture retention and accelerate wheel degradation. Providing there is no minute damage to the wheel surface, fitting the "AlloyGator" wheel rim protectors will not cause damage on its own, however AlloyGator Limited accepts no liability if the product when fitted causes such damage. Taking the above into account, we do still have many customers with machine polished wheels, that choose to use alloygators to protect their wheels.

Will fitting AlloyGators affect my insurance?

The AlloyGator rim protector is not deemed a performance enhancing product and fitting them to your vehicle should not affect your vehicle insurance premium, however we would recommend you speak to your insurance Company to discuss your own individual requirements
