Alloy Wheel Repairs
The wheels on your vehicle are the lowest part of the vehicle with a decorative finish and so are often in harm's way when driving.
If you have wheels with damage, come see the experts at Tyrepower.
Bring your alloy wheels to Tyrepower for a quote on repairing gutter rash, chips, bends and cracks.
Repairing Gutter Rash and Stone Chips
Repairing light cosmetic damage such as rash and chips usually involves removing the finish from the damaged section and filling the damage to blend the area.
After the physical damage is covered, the wheel is refinished to match the area with the rest of the wheel.
Since gutter rash and chips don’t harm the structure of the wheel, this type of repair is safe to perform on all kinds of factory and aftermarket wheels.
Bends and Cracks
Bends, warping and cracks are a serious type of damage that not all stores have the capability to repair.
Wheels often suffer this kind of damage due to collisions with potholes, curbs or other impacts.
For a durable and safe repair on alloy wheels with bends, cracks and warping, often the entire wheel must be tempered to remove internal stresses caused by welding the damaged area.
Regardless of the type of damage and repair, a good repair will result in a strong, safe wheel that is balanced.
Wheel Repairs by Qualified Professionals
Prior to any repairs taking place, bring your wheels in to see us at Tyrepower for an expert evaluation.
Oftentimes, wheels are just too far damaged to be safely repaired. Depending on the usage case and vehicle, replacement wheels may be the best option moving forward.
Replacing your wheels isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Depending on your vehicle, you might find a set of replacement wheels that meet your needs better than what is currently fitted. A great example is replacing the factory alloy wheels on your 4WD with a set of aftermarket steel wheels. Steel wheels are tougher, easier to repair and much cheaper to replace if they are damaged while driving.
