Default Curb rash -- prevention. Feedback appreciated

On this forum and some others I've seen quite a few posts about preventing and fixing curb rash. I am a serial entrepreneur and am considering starting a company to address this issue. The technology is challenging but the idea is really quite simple--electronic curb feelers; an array of sensors that would warn you BEFORE you scrape your rims.

We have a design and have filed for patents but I wonder how big the market would be. Would you buy? At what price?

Your feedback is greatly appreciated!!

I try to buy tires that have an edge or rim saver cast in them. NEVER stretch a tire over an oversized rim - show car only (maybe)

Now if your system doubles as a laser jamming device, your market is enormous
