How to Protect Tesla Wheel Rims

How to Protect Tesla Wheel Rims

  • The tesla wheels are beautiful, but the rims get scratched or rash easily. What are some good ways we can protect it or cover it up after a rash? Here I recommend a good idea for you, it is a one-time investment for long-term protection of Tesla rims, and at the same time it can cover rim rash.

Why do we need rim protectors?

  • Tesla's rim is easy to curb rash, who wants to drive a beautiful Tesla with a scraped-up wheel?
  • Rim rash repairs cost $150+ each, and new third-party wheels can cost hundreds of dollars.
  • The rim protector provides long-term protection of the wheel rim while covering any rashes that have developed.
  • You can remove it at any time, or replace it with a new one for a lower price when it gets scratched.

How do rim protectors protect rims?

  • It is mounted on the rim and covers the rim. It provides protection and cushioning for the rim, all external forces will only damage the rim protector, not the rim. Just like our mobile phone screen protector, the protective film is broken when the phone is dropped, but the screen is still intact.

How to Choose a Good Rim Protector?

Consideration 1: Perfect fit

  • Tesla has a smaller rim gap, not all rim protectors on the market are suitable for it, the rim protector specially designed for Tesla is a better choice. 

Consideration 2: Good looks

  • I think every Tesla owner likes Tesla's exterior design very much, and we don't want any product to spoil its beauty. Alloy rim protectors are more refined and less obtrusive than rubber or nylon rim protectors. In addition, it must be a complete circle without any cutting gaps. 

Consideration 3: Powerful protection

  • Usually, there are three kinds of materials for rim protectors, which are alloy, rubber and nylon. Among them, the hardness of the alloy material is the strongest, and it is difficult to be damaged by hard objects. Rubber is the softest, it tends to deform or shift in a crash and doesn't protect the rim. 

Consideration 4: Firm and not fall off

  • Falling off is something that all rim protector buyers worry about. We have done a lot of testing and product optimization for this. We chose 3M VHB double-sided adhesive, which has strong viscosity and excellent anti-aging performance. In addition, we redesigned the size and edge shape of the rim protector so that it fits tightly to the rim by its own tension. It is more than 3 times firmer than ordinary rim protectors.

  • Many rim protectors on the market are a pain to install, requiring the wheel to be removed, the tire deflated, or cut yourself. This is very unfriendly to ordinary users. Our products do not require any of the above operations, nor any tools, just simple cleaning and pasting. 

In summary

  • I have summarized the pros and cons of common rim protectors.
