Alpin 72879 rims tree with sheath and accessories to 225 mm tire width (Automotive)

Customer Review

Before purchasing this rims tree I had some concerns at first and had not really recognized the need for a rim tree.
Since I now 18 "aluminum wheels use on my car in the summer and the wheels I was advised during wheel change urgently not to lay with nothing between them to be stacked, because the tires are not particularly far above the rim, I was now looking for a fine solution be on my wheels, which spared my wheels and not scratched.
The Alpin rims tree came for the lowest 11.99 to Amazon Lightning offer and so I thought to myself as much money you can not break anything here, even if the tree should be suitable depending nothing.

Has arrived than the rim tree then came the big surprise:
- The individual components of the rim tree make a very stable and massive impression
- Wide range of accessories has been included (tread depth gauge (TOP), tire pressure gauge (well ^^), wheel marks (in practice), key to tighten the screws of the foot (simple piece of metal sheet with a hole in the shape of the screw head) and last but not least a fabric sleeve to cover the completely equipped with wheels rims tree (as it were the icing)
- Fast assembly
- A few items
- Overall good workmanship

Now for my experience with the rims tree:
The construction goes fairly quickly from hand, even if the tightening of the screws on the foot with the enclosed "key" extremely uncomfortable and tedious is - with a neat key that is but a small thing - therefore per se to build a perfect score.
After mounting the foot braces, a retainer ring is only plugged in the lower tube, pushed and secured with a very solid looking bolt. Then come gradually the wheels on each retaining rings.
The fully assembled and stocked rims tree is stable overall, and even if you notice a very slight sway when pushed flips here sure about anything, will not mind if cut or entered by force - so everything was great in everything.
The wheels are supported on the retaining ring so that the tires are completely in the air and not be charged.
The ordinary cleaning of wheels can then be ultimately crowned by covering the entire rim tree with the enclosed protective cover - so the wheels do not dust, and it looks in the garage even neater.

Note should be the maximum total load on the wheels with a total of 100kg tree (ie max. 25kg each complete wheel), this was at my 225/40 R18 Complete Wheels not a problem, from 19 or 20 inches could however possibly here have problems.

A really good rims tree that should be enough slack for household use.
The supplied key Schaub is quite crap, but this should pose no problem for most.
The accessories is extensive and mostly also of decent quality.

Overall, especially for the reasonable price of me a strong buy recommendation for those who do not spend too much money and your wheels still want clean store, orderly and safe.
