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.
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.
To remove the profile simply jack up the car, fully deflate the tyre, remove the plastic joining clip and carefully prise the profile up around the joint area. Firmly tap the face of the AlloyGator using a rubber mallet on the side which has the hole in it. This will then release the glue and open up the joint. Once the joint is open carefully prise the profile out of its seated position from the tyre side of the wheel, starting with the end without the hole and using a tyre lever or flat bladed screwdriver along the side and under the profile, prising in an upward motion. Once the end of the profile is free from the wheel and tyre then carefully pull it out from its position across the tyre wall in an outward motion in order to prevent any damage to the wheel from the stainless steel clips.
The AlloyGator is locked to the wheel over 360° using highly robust patented technology. Please view our fitting video on our home page for further advice.
They have been tested under normal driving conditions and within the legal speed limit.

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. Over the last 3 years we have fitted numerous sets to Diamond Cut Wheels and the advice we give is the following..
If you have existing damage to a Diamond Cut Wheels then you can either have it repaired then fit AlloyGators or cover the damage with a set of AlloyGators. Wether you fit AlloyGators or not the damage to the wheels will never get any better, it will only get worse. Fitting AlloyGators will 1, cover the damage and 2, prevent any further kerb damage. If you have existing damage and fit AlloyGators then the damage will be hidden but still be there.
