Rim protection tires.

Recommended Posts

Just purchased a 2016 MKZh that came with very expensive 19 inch 20 spoke charcoal wheels ,which I really like. Now I am learning that some tires come with a protruding rubber ring that sticks out to protect the wheel from curb rash,I never heard of this before. Anyway the Michelin's a/s mxm4 on the car have this feature and there are even better a/s tires now that have them,one in particular is the new Michelin a/s pilot sport 3 plus,that sounds like a better tire in snow.

Those rim protectors have saved my bacon a couple of times.  You can still get curb rash with a hard enough scrape. Ask me how I know.

 

All low-profile tires should have these.
