Do I Need an Alloy Wheel Refurbishment and Repair Contractor?

Scratches and notches in alloy wheels not only look unattractive, they also reduce the value of the vehicle, and if left unchecked can even be dangerous. Minor damage to alloy wheels can quickly cause hairline cracks to develop, and these cannot be repaired. It’s really important to regularly clean your alloy wheels and to check them for damage. Causes of damage to alloy wheels can include bad weather, contact with the kerb, driving on salty surfaces and more.

Whether you want to repair your alloy wheels to remove scratches or dents, or replace them entirely, alloy wheel refurbishment and repair specialists can help. Repair is generally significantly less expensive than replacement, so it is worth investing early. HaMuch can help you find the right local alloy wheel refurbishment specialist for the job.

What Do Alloy Wheel Refurbishment and Repair Specialist Mechanics Do?

An alloy wheels and refurbishment expert is a specialist mechanic who can help eliminate wheel damage, polish the rims and restore them to their original look. If abrasions, bumps or corrosion are found on the alloy wheels, repair by partial painting is usually the best solution.

The duties of an alloy wheel repair worker include:

  • Checking your alloy wheels and recommending any necessary repairs: An alloy wheel mechanic will take a closer look to see if there are bumps in the edge of the rim, and then thoroughly clean the damaged area with nitro thinner — this is the only way to accurately identify the actual extent of the damage. The specialist can then easily repair your wheel by sanding, polishing and repainting it.
  • Preparing the rim: A rim cannot be processed on the spot. It requires a complete renovation, since it must be removed. Repair specialists will remove the rim and investigate for further damage on the alloy's inner surface. They can keep the tyre on the vehicle as they remove the rim and, working their way up, they will make sure that the balance weights of the wheels have not come loose.
  • Repairing damage: Specialist alloy wheel repair mechanics work very carefully, using an electric multi-tool to grind out the coarsest scratches, nicks and cracks. The damaged area can then be filled and smoothed.
