Q: What is the material that the products are made of plastic or aluminum?
Thanks

Avatar Bimmian Rep.

A: Our rim protection strips are manufactured in the UK using quality rubberized plastic, they are fully tested and offer the best performance and value available.

Avatar Customer

Q: Are these protective strips likely to get damaged during tire replacement or will they interfere with proper mounting and balancing of new tires?

Avatar Bimmian Rep.

A: If you are planning on changing tires using the same rim that already has these strips mounted, they will have to be removed during new tire mounting.

Avatar Customer

Q: i have 19 rims for my bmw 328i i was wondering if the strip is long enough to cover the whole rim

Avatar Bimmian Rep.

A: Yes, this will easily fit wheels up to 22\" in diameter. Simply trim the strips to the intended length using an exacto-knife/box cutter.

Avatar Customer

Q: How would I remove these from the rim and will the removal damage the rim\'s finish?

Avatar Bimmian Rep.

A: You can simply peel it off. Then follow up with a blow drier/heat gun and adhesive remover. This will not damage the rim's finish.

Please note machined lipped wheels require more time to clean/remove the adhesive compond.
