Skin sticks very well as long as you follow instruction :)
So many reviews saying the skin comes off - well not for me after I've had it for a few months now.
You just gotta follow the instruction! Get yourself some acetone from bunnings and clean your rim before application. I've gone through multiple car washes including high-pressure water and had absolutely no problem.
Great work guys! (Are you planning to make green ones by any chance? let me know)
Purchased in January 2021.
Simple cheap effective
Easy to fit and covered unsightly damage at a fraction of the cost of a professional repair. You must follow the instructions, particularly the heat advice. I'm very pleased with the outcome.
Purchased in July 2020 at eBay for $56.99.
Thought they were good, until I actually needed them
Bought these for my mini cooper after getting the wheels refurbished. Thought they looked good, they stuck well - after through prep cleaning. So decided to use them for my new Subaru Levorg. Just come back from the McDonald's drive through where I clipped the curb at 2km/h (stop-start drive through speeds). First time I've actually needed them to their their job and they failed miserably. As other's have noticed, they just peel off, and the wheel still gets damaged. Waste of money.
Am on my 2nd set now, as they were removed fitting new tyres. I really dont know how some people say this is a bad product! This is an awesome product! Just follow the instructions, easy as...
Had my first set on for 45000kms, never came loose whatsoever, sticks perfectly and yes they do protect your rims. Obviously if you're gonna hit a curb at 30km/hr it wont. Hit a curb a few times when parking, protected the rim and didnt even came off...
This is a great product!
Purchased at Rimskins for $55.00.
I must admit I was somewhat dubious about the quality of adhesion of this product, after reading some less than positive reviews.
That said, the ‘KEY’ is making sure your rims are crystal clean, and the product works well and as described.
I made the mistake of not filing/grinding back deep gutter rash on one wheel and paid the price of having to purchase another (single) strip to correct my error.
All in all, the product is excellent.
I have had several enquiries as to how and where I purchased this great product.
I was at a loss when I was told it would cost me over $120 per wheel to repair.
Until I found Rimskins!
Purchased in July 2019.
Works well !
Works well take a bit of time to prep the wheels but once done, they're pretty solid. I think it's better to clean and prep the wheels on a hot day to ensure that there are no water residue left behind to ensure the 3M bond properly.
One of them got loose (my mistake the first time) and was smacking against the body work, lucky the material quite soft & flexible so there were no damages to the body work.
I've tried using eBay version prior however the tape provided was subpar and would completely peel off in a week.
The most annoying part maybe leftover glue residue ? Maybe Rimskins can include a removal wipe as well that would be awesome !
Read the instructions
Have been using them for a couple of years now.
As they state in the blurb won't protect at speed >5km/h impact fairly correct.
Apply in above 15c.
They stick fine just leave to dry at least 2hrs after using the supplied wipes, then wipe the rim with a dry clean dry cloth (towel) to make sure.
When sticking push down with thumb as you stick them on, after doing the entire wheel & trimming the ends a small bit of dishing washing on your thumb then push hard whilst rotating around the rimskin.
Don't drive for at least 23hrs to give the glue time to cure.
Since putting these on my wife's car, accurate parking doesn't matter so much. Should have invented these years ago. Provides protection against gutter damage and gives you peace of mind. Easy to fit, looks good and now I don't have to worry about parking issues. Great product, saves lots of arguments...
Does exactly what it says. I had a problem installing them so I contacted Rimskins, they were prompt and very helpful. I can't believe they have bad reviews. If they are installed properly and according to the instructions then they should last forever. Fantastic customer service would highly recommend it.
Follow instructions! Then awesome
They do exactly what they claim to and they do it well. East to fit. They look amazing! If you follow the instructions and take care when fitting they don't come off. Scrapped against a bluestone curb and they broke yes. But no gutter rash. Can't complain about that. Cheap, easy, awesome! Highly recommend for gutter rash protection and for the look.
Great idea, great product, very happy repeat customer
Just fitted my fourth set of Rimskins in six years (blue on a silver car) and can’t imagine how much money they've saved me in rim repairs etc (nobodies perfect). I love my car, and these just give the car a little more personality and protect the wheels too - win win!
The negative reviews must be people who didn't fit them properly (which I've done too - but even when it came off on a freeway they didn't scratch anything). From experience, if you fit them correctly, they will stay on for good, or at least until you trash them on a spikey g...utter anyway. I don't mind this as it gives me an excuse to choose another colour! I've learnt now to prep the wheel with the wipes, and not try to stretch them on like tape and they stick for good. I've bought these for all the family and some friends because they are a great Aussie invention and practical protection for the wheels - scratched wheels can make a nice car look battered and these make battered wheels look awesome again.
Rimskins are awesome!!!!!!!!!!
I have had these fitted to my pride & joy for over 3 years & have gutter bashed my wheels on several occasions but the rimskins protected the rim from damage. I have had to replace one rimskin due to a very large impact & grind on the kerb but there is a spare one in pack so all was good
Questions & Answers
Hi there Rimskins
I have purchased a couple of sets of your grey rimskins, one for my car and another as a gift.
I have been very happy with mine and they have saved me a couple of times for sure.
I am however having troubles with them all starting to come unstuck on all my wheels, not just the ones where they were knocked.
I read in some of your replies regarding this issue that you would fit them properly if we came in?
I'm happy to buy another set but would really appreciate help installing them properly so I'm wondering if this is possible in Sydney NSW?
Please let me know asap
