    Protecting your car
    I did not have that with my 560...I only did Xpel over full front and down the rockers, not in front of the rear wheel well. Cactus, are seeing chips? I'd be more concerned myself if so as I just mounted ADV1's with a wider offset which will only make the issue worse as Carter pointed out.

    @Ferruccio, with wider offsets I have seen chips to be in issue but this was because the car was tracked AND high way driven. If you do neither you should be fine. If you do both, I would consider protection.

    What if you do just one of those?

    If you track the car, I would very strongly recommend protection. If you simply drive it on the highway from time to time, you should be okay.

    Thanks, I'm definitely leaning towards NOT doing the rear panels.

    I gotta say, I am pretty damn happy I used XPEL to protect my boys. Each car (Anniverary Aventador, Huracan and i8) are fully protected. This weekend I prepped the Huracan for its rally in Cali. Cleaned and applied the protectant. Really happy knowing my paint is protected even for my rallies. No complaints for sure. Don't think I would ever buy another car without doing this. Didn't have it on my M6 and have a small chip that just kills me seeing it overtime on the hood. UGH
