RimPro Tec NZ Made and SEMA Award Winner
Macs Equipment are distributors for NZ made RimPro Tec. We first saw this product being marketed as Wheel Bands at the 2011 SEMA show winning 3 awards and upon investigation found it to be manufactured in New Zealand. RimPro-Tec reduces the risk of damage to alloy wheels caused by contact with the kerb when parking and manoeuvring.
RimPro Tec is a 2 part durable plastic extrusion system consisting of a track that is adhered to the wheel plus an inner bead that is a press fit into the track. The bead and then the track become the sacrificial points of contact before a wheel rim is damaged and saving the driver from substantial cost. The standard track kit comes with a track plus bead inner in either silver or black to suit most discrete applications. An additional range of 10 bead colours is available to the car owner who wishes to colour coordinate or contrast the wheels with the body of their vehicle. RimPro Tec can be fitted to the daily driver or street machine in 30-40 minutes for all 4 wheels with a flat and very clean 6mm surface being the only prerequisites.
The RimPro-Tec kit comes packaged complete with a full set of:
When fitted, the RimPro Tec bead will sit 6mm proud of the adhered surface to provide protection for the alloy wheels.
