    Donít know about RimBrim?


    Itís cleaner, faster, smarter wheel care

    Car lovers live to tinker and wrench. Engines, bodies, interiors, you name it: We take things apart and put them back together, sometimes replacing busted parts, sometimes to rebuild, sometimes to solve some problem or another, sometimes just for the fun of it. Thereís personal satisfaction gained from learning how things work (or donít work) and how they go together. Whatever the automakers did, we can do better!

    Tinkering and fiddling, of course, often includes cleaning stuff, and at times that means using chemicals.

    Trouble is, not all chemicals are good for all parts of the car. For example, the chemicals used for cleaning your carís tires -- silicone, glycerin, petroleum -- arenít necessarily good for the wheels and brakes: Overspray from tire-shining protectant can harm your brake discs, brake calipers, brake pads or wheels (wheels are particularly delicate -- usually the first thing on your car to get scratched -- thatís why a wheel or tire part is sold every seven seconds).

    This is where RimBrim comes in. The easiest way to explain RimBrim is that through its unique patented design, it prevents tire-shining overspray from going where you donít want it. So each time you use it you get a mess-free spray application. And because you wonít have to reclean the wheels (or whatís behind them) after protecting the tires, you save a ton of time.

    RimBrim was originally launched in 2009 as a foundation to build a line of innovative and valuable car-care products for enthusiasts. Itís located in Akron, Ohio, the global center of polymer technology and engineering. In other words, CEO John Mitchell and his team know what theyíre doing.

    Hereís how RimBrim works:

    Position the RimBrim over your wheel. The grip is ergonomically designed so you can hold the disc over the wheel while spraying your tire protectant on. There are tabs located on the top edge -- they can be inserted between your wheel and the tire brim for hands-free use. RimBrim comes in six sizes -- from 16 inches to 22 inches.

    Spray on your favorite tire protectant. RimBrim is perfect for wipe-off and no-touch tire-shine protectants. If you use a wipe-off product, wipe off excess tire-shine protectant with a cloth to prevent streaking and run-off.
    After treating the tires, remove any excess spray from RimBrim.

    You just saved yourself a ton of time, your spotless wheels and polished tires have your ride looking spectacular and your driveway is stain-free.

    Hereís what some RimBrim users had to say:

    ďI have used the other wheel protectors like the most common adjustable one, and they all seem like they are junk. Cheap plastic, get brittle in no time, cracks, breaks after a year. I only adjusted it from 17 inches to 20 inches, not like I was stressing it to 14-inch wheels or anything and storing it that way. I got sick of that type, so I started searching. I have only had the RimBrim a day, but I can already tell the quality of plastic is much better. Fitment is dead on!Ē
    --Keith, on Amazon.com

    ďI have had my RimBrim for several weeks and used it many times. I am very happy with my RimBrim. I previously had a problem with tire dressing occasionally getting on my brakes, which increased my braking distances. I bought an 18-inch RimBrim. It fits my 18-inch wheels perfectly. Now, when I spray on tire dressing, it all goes on the tires and none gets on my brakes.Ē
    --Tim, on Amazon.com

    ďI purchased the RimBrim to use on my Jeep Wrangler. Itís hard to apply a wipe on tire dressing to all terrain tires because the tread lugs extend down the sidewalls. I found that foaming type tire dressings work the best and the RimBrim works perfectly to keep the foam off the Wheels. I even use it on the spare since itís hanging on the tailgate. It works so well, that I bought one for my wifeís car.Ē
    --Scott, on Amazon.com

    Anyone using this?

    I don't even like tire shine lol Shinny tires never looked good or natural to me. I actually really the like the fuzzy matte finish the Michelin PS4Ss come in.

    With pretty much all spray cleaners, dressings, chemicals, I spray onto an applicator, then apply. There should be no overspray, unless you are using water.

    It just seems like some asshole's "million dollar idea" for a shark tank pitch or something. Something "as seen on TV"
