RimPro-Tec are a defensive product intended to reduce the potential for scratches and light scuffs to your rims. A 5 MPH car bumper, they are intended to absorb some of the impact with road hazards in an effort to avoid more serious damage to what is behind them. The same as for your bumper, in many cases the RimPro-Tec will be damaged, but damage to the rims behind your RimPro-Tec will be reduced or avoided.
RimPro-Tec perform best in slow speed maneuvering conditions such as parallel parking and driving into car wash tracks. The best way to think of the value in using RimPro-Tec is like this: Without RimPro-Tec your bare rims are like riding a motorcycle with only a bathing suit on. With RimPro-Tec your rims are dressed in the equivalent of a leather jacket and leather pants — in the colors of your choice!
