Wow, it's like a TR6.
The picture in post 114. It didn't come across in the reply for some reason. (It always comes when I don't want it to). Or did you mean a TR6 picture?
I meant the TR6 picture. We search didn't pop up any rims like that for me.
I was thinking that it looked like the OE redwalls the TR6 came with. Scroll down a bit on the link to see.
Ah, excellent. Thanks!
who put them on for you?
Has anyone from the seattle area installed the AlloyGators by others? Mine are here. Discount Tire will not install, SC won't install, questing for someone to put them on for me. Thanks.
Just had a local tire shop install these, no more worry about curb rash!
you put them on yourself? Oh, ARGH! Girls can't do that. Any Seattle suggestions for me? Mine are here.
Metropolitan Detail in Bellevue will do it.
Just ordered my set. TESLA10 discount code is active again
Any sense to putting these on 19" Cyclones? Anyone have pics if so?
A 19" tire is still plenty low-profile enough to get curb rash on the rims, so I did it with my 19" spoke-style rims.
Ah gotcha - did you go anywhere specific to get it done?
So what about the reports I've read by doing a search on the rim protectors that say they can come loose when driving and cause all sorts of damage to the car's paint, body, other cars on the road? Real issue or not?
No problem with them coming off. I had them installed in April. In fact, I had to replace one tire in August due to a bulge in the sidewall) and Tesla SC had a difficult time getting the AlloyGator.
Why yes... my garage.
If you are the type to do light vehicle repair/maintenance work, installing them is pretty easy. Took under 2 hours:45 mins for the first one figuring it out, and about 15 mins each for the remaining 3.... plus setup/cleanup.
If you aren't up for do-it-yourself, people typically have their preferred tire service center do it, form what I've read.
Not if properly installed.
Yes - that is exactly my point, how do I tell if they will properly install them? I have never done anything non-standard to my previous car's tires. I have Firestore, STS Auto, and Sears Auto in close proximity so I guess those are fairly well-respected for this kind of thing?
