    Default Alloy Gators

    I saw these in Auto Express a few weeks ago and thought they were a really good idea, went to the website and had a look at the different colours they do. As my car is a Black SRi I am considering a set of red ones to set off my red calipers, has anyone on here got a set and if you have are there any pics?

    The prices seem very reasonable.

    Possibly the most stupid and pointless, if not dangerous, idea I have ever seen.

    Trap dirt and moisture, risk silicone onto the pads and trap mositre and dirt onto the calipers & risk overheating.

    Yep, good idea!

    Anyone actually fitted the 'AlloyGators'? I'm a little baffled as to the above comment
