Your choice of alloy wheel protector will depend on aesthetic preference, wheel type, and fitting process associated with the materials. Therefore, when selecting a rim protector for your vehicle, you should keep the following factors in mind:

You can go for a unique look by choosing bold shades of protectors, or black if you want the tyre to look bigger. Metallic tones will make your alloy wheels 'pop', drawing attention to them.
- Shape and style: Rim protectors come in multiple designs to suit the tyre and the wheel. Some are made for rims with flat edges while others are for curved or round sides.
- Material: There are two types of wheel rim protectors - fitted and self-adhesive. A fitted protector is made from tough nylon and it works by slotting between the wheel and the tyre. The self-adhesive protector is made from rubber and is easily stuck on the wheel, protecting it from kerb damage.
The ease of fitting alloy wheel protectors depends on the type you have chosen. A self-adhesive protector can easily be fitted at home, although each alloy wheel protector may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions. Fitted wheel rim protectors need to have the tires deflated before fitting, so may require professional assistance, particularly when slotting the protector between the wheel and tyre.Alloy wheel rim guards and tire inflation
