In a few weeks, I will be getting my rims dipped with Autoflex and have thought about protecting them with Alloygators. I inquired about the prices and they have went up since a friend bought them. They now want $189 for the set, plus $38 for each tire for it to be installed. That is $375 after tax! Then...if you damage one via curb rash, you are out another $95 (one install and purchase of one alloygator). If you get curb rash on your naked rims, you probably would spend $100-150 to fix, but avoid the initial up front cost of $375. Unless you are looking to buy them for aesthetics, is there some benefit here I am missing????
