Seems we are not the only fans of AlloyGator who have just scooped the Auto Express ‘Best Product of the year’ award, beating over 750 other products assessed and tested by Auto Express over the last 12 months.

Available in a range of colours including red, blue, yellow, pink, green and white the AlloyGator fits between the rim and tyre so protects your alloy wheels from scuffs, scratches and other wheel and tyre damage.

Made of super tough nylon giving superior protection in all conditions, AlloyGator will extend the life of alloy wheels, saving time and money on expensive repairs. Designed in partnership with industry professionals, the AlloyGator alloy wheel protection system is technically proven, and has undergone a rigorous MIRA testing and development process.

Curt Rathbone of AlloyGator commented, “What makes the Auto Express Award so fantastic for us is that when we originally launched AlloyGator some 3 years ago, Auto Express didn’t give us such a good product test review. We listened to their comments and the comments of our customers, made the necessary changes and it has paid off. We are so proud to have won’’

Curt continued “Our research indicates that 80% of vehicles under 5 years old now have alloys, a figure that we expect to continue to rise as more and more new vehicles are being fitted with alloys as standard. We know only too well that the current economic climate means that people are keeping their cars for longer, so fitting a set of AlloyGators will ensure that the car looks better for longer too’’


With an SRP of £59.95 to purchase a set of five for DIY fitting or an SRP of £95.95 for a set of five AlloyGators including fitting by an approved AlloyGator fitter, the AlloyGator patented alloy wheel protection system provides a cost effective solution that can save on alloy wheel repairs and replacements.
