Zalloys International Limited, manufacturer of WHEELUV Alloy Protection, has launched a patented, OEM quality and impact-resistant wheel protection system.
Built to withstand the elements, WHEELUV Alloy Protection has undergone rigorous testing and is industry approved, used by vehicle manufacturers and tested by HORIBA MIRA and Intertek to offer quality assurance.
WHEELUV has drawn on its tier 1 OEM manufacturing pedigree to be adapted for the aftermarket and has now become available to certified professional installers. Backed by a one-year guarantee and cut to size, the wheel protectors are available in five colours: silver, black, anthracite, red and blue. With fitting in less than 30 minutes, they do not require specialist tools, tyre deflation or bead breaking. Injection moulded from impact modified polymers, they are curved to match the radius of the wheel and fit to car alloy wheels with 3M VHB adhesive tape.
WHEELUV Alloy Protection is compatible with most wheels and tyres, including diamond cut wheels and run flat tyres. It will reportedly not lose colour when washed, does not cause any damage to wheel lacquer or bodywork and does not interfere with the bond between the tyre and wheel rim, so there is no risk of pressure loss. All components have been compatibility tested to withstand fuel, oil, brake fluid, all major types of wheel cleaners, acids, bases and other workshop products to ensure colour and functionality are unaffected.
Each WHEELUV Alloy Protection pack comes equipped with everything a certified partner requires for fitting, including a bespoke wipe system to clean and prep the wheel, so that no advance wheel washing is needed.
James Taqvi, Managing Director of Zalloys International, said: “As the number of vehicles sold with expensive alloys, particularly diamond cut variants, fitted as standard increases, more and more people are looking for a way to protect their vehicles. WHEELUV Alloy Protectors provide an opportunity for aftermarket businesses to take advantage of offering a premium quality, cost-efficient product to their customers, with the peace of mind that the system is backed by vehicle manufacturers. It provides tyre specialists, alloy repairers, vehicle detailers and garages with the benefit of cut to size parts to help reduce the stock holding required for WHEELUV, with each protector fitting wheels from 15 to 22 inches.
“It also offers motorists the added satisfaction of a reliable, OEM quality product being fitted by a professional fitter from a nationwide network of certified installation partners.
