Automotive Wheel Repair
Gone are days of dodgy repair jobs and limited paint choices. Now with multi-finish options and custom colors, your wheels can become truly unique and be repaired efficiently using the most advanced processes.
Your Wheels are the ultimate center piece for your car. You want to keep them in the best condition for car shows, family events and for higher resale value. With a host of techniques out there, it’s hard to understand where to begin.
Why do I need good wheels?
When you drive along, passersby admire cars by their wheels. Making yours stand out will ensure that others will admire your vehicle and style. Plus, having healthy alloy wheels is vital for your safety. As damaged wheels do not rotate evenly, they can leak air out of the tires and even tiny cracks can lead to wheel buckling and serious accidents. It is essential that you have good condition wheels when driving.
How do Alloy Wheels Get Damaged?
Alloys get damaged most often by being in contact with another object. Curbs are common causes for wheel damage, as they are low enough to come into contact with your alloys and are always present when you park on city streets. When coming into contact with a curb, material and paint are removed and can leave your wheels exposed to the elements. This exposure leads to rust and further paint stripping.
A wheel rim can also be damaged in an area that is hidden from view. When driving over potholes or hard objects, the rim can buckle, crack, and cause unsafe driving conditions. Ideally you need to get your wheels checked out if you have an accident, or after a puncture. Just to see if they are in suitable condition to drive.
It’s also important to note that wheel repair costs vary, depending on how much damage it has and the type of wheel your vehicle is equipped with. Getting a wheel repair expert with wide industry knowledge is essential for vehicle safety.

Our leading industry technicians work away to repair damaged wheels. They prime and paint the wheels before finishing them off with layer of clear coat to make them really stand out. Colors are then matched to the original paint and finished off. The whole process often takes less than an hour.
For restoring the shine - polishing your wheels is the best option. The clear coat layer is carefully removed before the polishing process can begin. Once worked on, your wheels shine so bright – no matter what surface damage had occurred. If your wheels are cloudy, oxidized or scratched then get yours polished today.
A CNC machine will take away a layer from the face of the wheels to restore it to an exceptional finish. Similar to polishing, the clear coat layer is removed and restored to clear any damage, brighten the look, and leave an outstanding finish.
When your paint peels or is stripped back, corrosion often starts bubbling up and produces uneven, rusty spots on your wheels. Brake dust, acid cleaners and road salts all make the problem worse. Your tires may even have a slow puncture due to inner corrosion – All of these are fixed with corrosion repair from Absolute Wheel Tech’s.
