Wheel Protectors Needed & Sourced
We need to protect our solid Calm Aluminium tireless wheels during transport or just rolling our car around in the shop, and decided that a rubber wheel protector was the best way to avoid any impact damage caused by running over any foreign objects.
We contacted VLI (Valley Longwall International) in Welshpool in Perth, who specialise in fabricating rubber products for the mining industry here in Western Australia, as well as many other first class services.
John Dailey, VLI's Branch Manager came to the rescue with a professionally cold bonded rubber rings that slip over our wheels to protect their running surface, 4 x tie-down straps then hold these protectors in place whilst the car is manoeuvred or transported. Thank you VLI for your great support...
The wheel protectors are shown on our mock-up wheels as the actual wheels are at Kentin Engineering undergoing axle and bearing work ready for fitting (more on this very soon).
