Well, guess I gotta point out the mispelling - it's Gaitor, not Gator.

Now then. Alloy being metals, that would be an unusual choice for gaitors - I personally prefer flexibility. Given your color theme {above} - something to make it pop:

I have the gray ones on now...can't even tell they are on as they blend with the wheel.
Don't think the red would look quite right...ricer is a good description.

OP totally needs those in red, except also lit up in neon.

Actually I wonder if you could make them so they do one of those moving optical image things so the wheels look like solid roundels while moving at night? How cool would that be?

BTW OP, those actually look pretty good/useful in gray. Would've saved me some curb rash over the years.

They are very useful! Saved my rims a couple of times! And cheap to replace.

In my opinion, Hot Pink slays all.
