    Scratched wheel - Dent Wizard dealer option

    When I bought my CPO - 2013 Prestige from my local San Diego Land Rover dealership I decided to purchase the optional "Dent Wizard - Ding Shield" (GAI Warranty Company) Cosmetic Alloy Wheel protection plan.
    The other day I scratched my right front 20" alloy wheel on a broken curb stop. (see pic)
    Great.

    Oh, well, I have an appointment to drop off my car next week so they can sublet the repair thru Dent Wizard.

    I just read some terrible customer reviews about this nationwide company.
    I'll update the results when I get my car back
    ,...
    We shall see...

    Ouch! It will be interesting to see how the repair works out. Rim protection is one of the reasons I went with a wider tire...

    hmmm....that looks like a solution.
    I wonder how hard are they to install?
    Not sure where the glue comes in...

    Does anyone out there use these? (Alloygators)

    I'm not sold. I can see brushing a curb hard enough to cause this ring to partially dislodged & then it's slapping the side of the fender... Might work for a very slow parking rub against a curb, not much more.

    Rovingvic, I understand your thinking, but they might be tougher than you think. I have no affiliation with these folks, just thought some
    members might find them useful.

    I know what you mean Rsquared and I agree with you. Alloygator is an interesting potential wheel saver device and could help in some minor wheel to curb scrapes. Lord knows I have scraped a few rims over the years, the last one was on an LR2 I had and the Alloygator might have actually worked in that situation.
