Alloygators

I'm thinking about getting my alloys refurbed as the wife kerbed on earlier last year.

I was just wondering if anyone has come across Alloygators and if they're any good?

dont buy them, they dont work. i was a stockist and put them on my sisters honda civic. one came off somehow after the car went to the dealers, the gator came partially off somehow, it damaged my sisters bodywork by placing some nice pressure dents on the side of her new car, she obv wasnt very happy.
sufficient to say they were very unhelpful as the claimed owner of the company didnt want to get into any "littigation" as honda is a big company.
good idea...just dont work.

Just teach her how to drive and park properly and it will save you the money wasting it on these things.

What i've seen offered by some dealers here in Australia is a similar product that is a complete circle made to size instead of just a strip that you cut to size.
