    Inexpensive way to conceal curb rash

    Hi All

    Curb rash on my 2014 xts platinum was bothering me. Then I found out wheel refinishing was going to run me up to $400 CDN a wheel. This bothered me even more. Then I invested $250 CDN and installed a set of Alloygators in red. My car is dark metallic blue. What’s a knockout change! And, the Alloygators covered up the curb rash. A win win scenario.

    I had not seen these. I take it they can be installed without a wheel balance? Just break the outside bead and slip them on?

    Yes, exactly. Where the two ends meet they epoxy on a small surface cap. They have two styles , two price points. The more expensive ones are more rounded and are intended for wheels greater than 20 inches. The wheel balance is not affected. In three hours after installation I had 3 compliments on the look.

    Moderator edit: Looks as if you figured it out. You don't need large file sizes - they chew up your allowed picture posting space. Sub.
