FAQ ABOUT ALLOY WHEEL REPAIR.
Do you offer a full refurbishment service?
We can repair minor scuffs and scratches to most Alloy wheels, we do not offer a sand blasting or a powder coating service. If your wheels are corroded or have peeling paint, then they will probably require a full refurbishment which required bead blasting. We do not offer this service. At present we only repair minor curb scuff damage to the Alloy wheel rim or face.
What damage can you repair?
We can repair most minor scuffs that spoil the look of your wheels. We offer a same day service for this type of repair.
Do you remove the tyre from the wheel?
No, we do not need to as we break the bead on the tyre and push the tyre back from the rim. Doing so allows access on and around the entire rim. We do this as it ensures a long lasting quality repair. Beware of other companies offering to repair wheels that do not ,at least break the bead first. We have had to redo many wheels for customers where they have been tempted by a cheaper wheel repair only to have paint flake off after a few weeks. If you are pricing around for the best price then always ask what the process is for wheel repair. If the bead is not broken then best to avoid!
Are you fully insured?
Yes, We have specialist insurance for moving vehicles, working on them and repairing wheels as well as the statutory employees and public indemnity insurance.
Do you repair buckled or cracked wheels?
No, It is best to replace rather than take a risk. It is easy to cover over a crack by welding but the wheel will always have a weak spot. We can repair most scuffs and scrapes but not cracked or buckled wheels.
Do you sandblast the wheels?
No, we only repair minor scuffs on Alloy Wheels. They can be repaired without sandblasting. We do not normally repair corrosion on Alloys which would need sandblasting.
Will you re balance the wheel for me after it has been refurbished?
Yes if they are repaired at the Workshop and they require it. However, because we only repair minor scuffs the wheel can be repaired without the need of removing the tyre from the wheel. Therefore the wheel does not need to be re balanced. If we need to remove the weights on the wheel then the wheel will be re balanced before being refitted to the car.
How do you get the same colour, What is the process.
The wheel is cleaned and the valve is removed. The bead is broken to enable us to push the tyre away from the rim. The tyre is covered up to protect it. The wheel is cleaned with acid and specialist cleaners. The damage is then sanded smooth and filler gels are applied to build up the damaged area. The area is primed ready for the colour. The paint is custom matched to your wheel. We have many different shades and textures of alloy wheel silvers. The paint is applied and blended over the repair and into the existing paint, then a Special scratch resistant lacquer is applied to give a rock hard diamond shine and protect the repair. The repair is almost undetectable when finished! Yes unbelievable but true.
How long does it take?
On average a wheel takes minimum of 2 hours. A set of 4 Alloys will take 1 day.
How long before I can drive the car afterwards?
Once the wheels are on the car, the vehicle is ready to go. We recommend the wheels are not washed for 7 days to let the resins fully cure. However, Rain or snow will not affect the repair finish.
