RimSavers are expertly designed for customer satisfaction
Through many years of experience in designing and manufacturing other rim protectors, the team behind RimSavers have utilised all their skills to expertly develop the best possible products available.
Our design team has invented and developed more rim protectors than anyone else in the world. They know what works and more importantly what doesn’t.
Born from a bigger brand
RimSavers is an extension of our main Rimblades brand and is the evolution of our journey where customer satisfaction is our main priority. Rimblades was started in 2010 and were one of the very first rim protection and styling products to market.
Launching in 2016 with Rimsavers & Rimsavers Pro
In 2016 we launched Rimsavers following two years of testing as a high performance lightweight product and alongside it worked on developing Rimsavers Pro as a high performance professional fit product to sit alongside and following three intensive years of design, development and testing now add this product to our range.
We have achieved outstanding high speed performance with RimSavers
We have done this by making the rim protector with a thin wall to make it lightweight and reducing rotational mass, but by using an advanced plastic polymer that is immensely strong and stiff, we have also got a useful sacrificial barrier covering the alloy wheel edge designed to absorb kerb impact.
The RimSaver retains its shape on fitment for a professional looking finish. Once installed, they are tight fitting to the wheel and are like a hard shell around the rim surface.
A stiff fitting guide lip on the top side and a VHB (very high bond) tape are used to attach them to the wheel surface.
We use one of the very best VHB tapes available from 3M. The tape is sealed from the weather, brake dust, road salt & wheel cleaners by a double sealing lip. Once fitted you cannot see how the RimSavers are attached to the wheel.
Add to this our highest ever quality wheel preparation kit, comprising of 3M IPA wipes and 3M 06396 adhesion promoters and superb retail packaging that fully protects the product in transit and we have a winning combination.
RimSavers are cut to the required size during installation and we have also added some small injection moulded joining clips/seam seals to the kits with a tube of adhesive, so even if you get the cut slightly out when sizing them, you have a piece to cover the join. We've thought of everything.
RimSavers are predominantly designed for the modern flat rimmed wheels common today, but will fit rims with a slight curve to the edge. All component parts on the Rimsavers kit are supplied by 3M to ensure consistent quality throughout. Rimsavers are then manufactured and packed in our factory in Cornwall. We even source our printed packaging locally in Somerset.
Three years is a long time in product development, when you know you're developing what will be the best rim protection and styling product available.
Rimsavers Pro are made from a super tough Polyurethane that has just enough elasticity in it to stretch tightly around the edge of the alloy wheel. In order to achieve this, a tyre fitting machine is required in order to push the tyre back away from the wheel basically breaking the seal between the wheel and the tyre. For this reason, the Rimsavers Pro can only be fitted by industry professionals with the right equipment and they are not suitable for DIY installation like the ordinary Rimsavers.
Most of the
Rimsavers Pro material is then sandwiched between the wheel and tyre as
they have a ribbed tail section. The tyre is then inflated trapping the
tail section firmly between it and the wheel surface. Due to the tight
fitment, the Rimsavers Pro do not slip out during inflation. Once
inflated, a portion of the Rimsavers Pro will be curved over the top
edge of the wheel and around onto the face of the wheel leaving a
visible protective part exposed.
RimSavers Pro are size specific. They are manufactured to order for TRADE CUSTOMERS only. For DIY customers, please purchase Rimsavers not Rimsavers Pro.
Rimsavers Pro are a patented product manufactured by us in our UK factory.
