Why not just not kerb your alloys, much cheaper ;)

Alloy gators seem to get better reviews providing they are fitted properly. I meant to get some before Xmas when they had 10% off but left it too late. Once my tyres need replacing I'm going to get them done, then tracking, then alloy refurb and then fit the alloygators.

Endorsed by Quentin Wilson, they must be good then.

Alloy Gators sit under the tyre edge so don't come loose. I was going to do this, but instead, just opted for a slightly different profile tyre that offers better rim protection.

Just bought a set of rimblades in silver for the XJ - will report back if they're any good.
The alloygaters require jacking of the car, deflation of the tyre and general faffing around that really doesn't appeal. The rimblades stick on with a thin strip pushing into the alloy/tyre wall.
