I saw an advert for alloy gators,ive never heard of these before,they look like a plastic trim which fits between the tyre and the alloy.
has anyone tried these in the past?
are they worth investing in to protect your alloys ?
Have not tried them but my concern with these is that dirt and water will get under the gator and could damage the finish on the wheel rim. I suspect that it may try to solve one problem but create another. Also, not sure they are going to look other than a plastic trim round the wheel which is probably not a good look.
just watched a video,(sorry cant get it posted on here for some reason) it shows that you have to deflate all the air from your tyre,then knock the plastic between the alloy and tyre,
my concern would be a good seal and loss of tyre pressure..i think your right it could cause other problems.
still interested if anyones tried them though.
maybe just a gimmick,
