Most cars and trucks are made with a steel body. However, a few vehicles are made with aluminum, fiberglass or plastic bodies too.
How do I know if Tactilian magnets will work on my vehicle?
Easy! A bit of Google research with the year, make and model of your vehicle plus the added search term “steel body” will likely turn up results that either confirm your vehicle as having a compatible steel body, or it will generate a bunch of results that have information about aluminum or plastic construction.
The most fool-proof way to verify is to simply grab a regular magnet from your home or office and check your vehicle by carefully applying it on the area that you wish to place your Tactilian magnet. We recommend using this method to be sure that you don’t discover that your vehicle has a non-steel body after you have received an order.
If you do have a plastic or aluminum body vehicle, don't panic! We have a great looking flag set available which has a high quality 3M adhesive backing for adherence to your ride. Check them out here!
