    AlloyGator

    So I was thinking about getting some Alloy Rim Protectors, had a search around....also saw a few posts on here for AlloyGator

    Anyway I asked if they could send me a couple of offcuts so that I could put them against the wheel to see which colour I preferred, only asked for Black and Silver....they arrived on Saturday "Not decided on the colour yet!" I then thought I'd ask if they would be interested in offering a discount to an Audi forum for guy's who have just got a New Audi and want to protect there Alloys

    Just had a reply

    Thank you for your mail.

    We would be happy to offer a discount code for a limited period for the members.



    Please let me know if this is something you are able to progress with your fellow members.

    Regards

    Anyone else interested

    Yes very interested, do they fit well? I think black would be best. How much are we looking?

    I haven't bought any yet! but they look very durable.....someone in the 8P forum swears by them, the prices are in the link....looks like they are around £60 for 5 but if we can get them to offer a discount! could save a few quid, I would imagine that they'd only offer a 10% discount

    Here is the other link

    Ask any decent tyre fitter and they'll laugh these outa the park. I researched for ages last year looking for some alloy protection. This product always cropped up so I asked at least 6 independent tyre fitters about these, all said they were a waste of money. E Tyres used to have these on their vans promoting them but had so many complaints / returns they ditched them completey. Major concerns were, they will come loose / fly off if corners are taken at speed, hitting pot holes, tyres are under inlflated. If they do come off at speed, just imagine where they'll end up / what damage they may do if they whack into your car.
    I'm only going on what I was told by professionals but if you want to try them, ask about money back guarantees.

    Hmmm sounds a little dodgy. I'll have to make sure the wife doesn't drive it!
