relatively easy. My front tyres are Nankangs and I really had to whack them quite hard to get them in. The back tyres are Michellins and they went on much more easily.
I also discovered my car does not come with a jack as it has that gel based puncture repair kit that does not require the car to be jacked up. So had to borrow one. Also, had to keep the engine on for the back wheels so the handbrake was off and I could rotate the wheels.
You needn't have kept the engine on while fitting the rear tyre gators. You should've pressed the footbrake or in some cars the accelerator pedal along with the handbrake, ignition on and that would havedone the trick.
Good photos King Koresh, i have the same model as you 2.0HDI Sport but in Black and was thinking those would those Alloygators would look good in Black. Plus been Paranoid about Kerbing them as they are perfect for the time being
Got them from alloygators.com I think you can only get them from them directly.
Of course, now I have them on, I will never kerb them again.... Actually, I have to get to Reading on Friday and the carpark I need to use has the most god awful tight turns so will see how well they hold up!
I have to say I am really pleased with the way they look on the car and I think they would look pretty good on a black one too! Go for it!
