The AlloyGator wheel protector has an opportunity for growth as motorists battle alloy wheel damage caused by hitting potholes. Hitting the side of a pothole can cause scrapes, scuffs and dents to alloy wheels resulting in expensive repair bills or even the need for replacements – all of which can be avoided by fitting AlloyGators, the company states. With the winter months sure to exacerbate the pothole problem, due to frozen water expanding cracks in the road, AlloyGator is increasing its efforts to roll out its product to more tyre retailers.
SGDetailing in Livingston has been appointed as the sole AlloyGator distributor in Scotland with the aim to build a close personal working relationship with Scottish fitters. As a result of the announcement, all existing Scottish trade accounts will now be able to order AlloyGator’s wheel protection system directly through AlloyGator Scotland.
Stevie Galloway, owner of SGDetailing and AlloyGator Scotland, said: “I’ve been an approved AlloyGator trainer and fitter for two years so I see first-hand the benefits to motorists of having AlloyGators fitted to their vehicles.
Former BBC Radio 1 DJ and Top of The Pops presenter Mark Goodier has revealed that AlloyGators have been ‘his saviour’ after confessing to kerbing his pristine alloy wheels just hours after picking up his brand-new car.
Goodier, best known as host of the BBC Radio 1 Chart Show for more than a decade, admitted that like many motorists, he’s damaged a ‘fair few’ wheels during his driving career.
Alloy wheel protection system manufacturer AlloyGator states that the newly reconfigured driving test could lead to opportunities for workshops and garages. Coming into force on 4 December, the new test removes the reverse around a corner manoeuvre, a move which AlloyGator believes could lead to even more damaged wheels.
To coincide with this year’s National Pothole Day (today – Monday 16 January), AlloyGator is launching a special competition to save drivers from having to put up with unsightly scuffed and scratched alloy wheels on their prized motors, often caused by potholes and kerbs.

AlloyGator has launched a new wheel care kit, which it says will offer an extra income generation opportunity to complement AlloyGator fitting services.
