Rimblades are fitted using the best quality Very High Bond (VHB) double sided acrylic foam tape available from 3M for an effortless and lasting bond that can also be removed easily leaving no damage to the wheel surface. The shape of the Rimblades design curves around the edge of the double sided tape to protect it. The Rimblade’s design is both innovative and easy to use. A lip on the rear side acts as a fitting guide. Simply place around the very edge of the wheel for a perfect fit – all the way around the alloy. Rimblades unique design shape will conform to fit virtually all shapes of alloy wheels including those with a flat or square face and those with a raised outer lip or a curved profile. There are a few aftermarket wheel designs available that have raised spokes extending to the lip. If wheels edges are not exposed then please deflates the tyres to tape around the edges as if tyres are not deflated then the rim edge will not stick properly. Do not use any object to remove or adjust the tyre edge as it can damage the product or finish.

Fitting: Also See Rimblades fitted on YouTube. Wash & dry wheels. Thoroughly remove any wheel cleaner and tyre spray residue. Any silicon based products left on wheels will stop Rimblades adhesion. Use the alcohol (IPA) wipes to thoroughly remove all grease from wheel rims. Ensure that top and face surfaces are cleaned. Using the primer wipes provided throughly coat the wheel rim and inner surface of the Rimblades profile. It is most important that complete coverage is obtained. Drying time is 1 to 5 minutes depending on air temperature. Apply the double sided tape to the wheel rim. Ensure the tape sits over the top edge of the wheel. You are aiming to get the tape on both the top and face surfaces of the rim. Cut where it meets, but do not overlap. Apply the Rimblades to the wheels. Remove backing tape and start away from where tape joins. Push the Rimblades onto the tape evenly all the way round the wheel rim with firm equal pressure Overlap the ends by around 0.5mm and then carefully mark and cut where 2 ends meet. A cut an angle of around 10 degrees diagonally in towards the Rimblade and the centre of the wheel will stop any gap between the two ends. Apply further equal pressure around circumference of all 4 Rimblades. A damp cloth will assist in adding equal smooth pressure. Note Rimblades and tape should be fitted within 30 minutes of primer application.
