Tires & Suitability

Yes, AlloyGators can be used on run-flat tires. You can see examples in our gallery. Installing our product to run-flats does require heavier force and we always recommend visiting one of our trained installers for a supply and install service. 

AlloyGators can generally be re-installed to the same wheels if you have new tires, providing they have not sustained heavy impact and all old glue residue is removed in order that the join can be effectively re-joined. We do not recommend re-installing damaged profiles.

AlloyGators are not recommended for machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels. Although installing the product will provide superior protection against curb 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, installing AlloyGators should not cause damage on its own, however AlloyGator™ Ltd accepts no liability if the causes the aforementioned damage when installed to machine polished or diamond cut alloy wheels. We do have many customers with machine polished wheels who use AlloyGators for wheel protection. See our Machine Polished Disclaimer.

AlloyGator Wheel Protectors can be fitted to wheels which have between 12 and a 24-inch wheel diameter. Though suitable for 98% of all wheel and tire combination, before installing AlloyGators we recommend that customers check the suitability of their combination on all wheels on their vehicle using the suitability gauge found within the box. Find out how to use the suitability gauge here.

AlloyGators Wheel Protectors are not recommended for diamond cut or machine polished alloy wheels.

AlloyGator Limited accepts no liability if the product is installed and such damage occurs.
