HD Valeting & Detailing Ltd are proud to be an official 5-star fitting partner of AlloyGator UK.
What are AlloyGator’s?
AlloyGators are made from super-tough nylon to provide superior protection for alloy wheels. The protection system fits between the wheel and tyre and is designed to protect alloy wheels against kerbing and pothole damage.
AlloyGators are highly engineered, robust wheel protectors designed to take the impact of kerbing and driving over potholes. Nearly fifteen years of product development has enabled us to manufacture a world-leading wheel protection system, made from super-tough blended nylon composite with an added UV stabilizer and impact modifier, to enable strength and durability in variable climates. Our wheel protectors are made in the UK. The new Exclusive profiles are developed with Vehicle OEMs and boast a matt finish with 50% more locking teeth, improved diamond grips and reduced space between metal clips to ensure a secure, long-lasting fit.
How long do they take to fit and do I need to book?
The fitting time can take up to 90 minutes.
All fittings are strictly carried out on an appointment basis, please call us on 07585 610373 in advance to arrange a suitable date and time.
Can they be used with run-flat tyres?
Yes they can, we have fitted numerous sets without any problems.
Can they be re-used if you have new tyres fitted?
Yes, they can as the removal and refit of a tyre shouldn’t affect the AlloyGator however, an element of care must be taken by the tyre fitter to ensure they are not damaged during this process.
Do they affect the inflation of the tyre?
AlloyGator’s do not cause inflation problems however they do highlight already existing issues.
Can AlloyGator be used on Machine Polished/Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels?
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 or HD Valeting & Detailing Ltd 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. You will be required to complete a disclaimer form prior to fitting.
How Permanent is the Colour?
Consistent colour is maintained throughout 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.
