Alloy Wheel Refurbishment:

Paint, Powder Coat and Polished Finishes

90% of Alloy wheels are painted with a powder coat finish, which inevitably degrades over time with weather, road dirt and kerbing damage. The lacquer will fade and even the paint will fade and degrade if you are a regular user of a car wash that uses acid? We can quickly and inexpensively bring them back to looking great again. Within 5 to 10 years, alloy wheels start to corrode on the back and this often creates an air leak as the tyre seal is no longer a tight and flush fit to the wheel. Overcoming this issue is one of the added benefits of full powder coat refurbishment.

Polished / Machined / and Diamond cut wheel refurbishment

Around 10% of alloy wheels have a “super-shiny” face that looks great when new, but generally dulls down quite quickly in the UK climate. These wheels have usually had a lathe pass over the face and you will even see the lathe lines if you look closely. These lines provide a key for the lacquer, which is then applied. Producing the wheel in this fashion, it looks bling, but binding the lacquer directly onto the machined / lathed/ polished metal, does mean the weather will get into the substrate much more quickly than on a standard alloy wheel. You will typically see white oxidation, especially around the centre cap, the bolt holes and at any points of kerbing damage.

The good news is we can refurb like new if you wish or refurb with a painted cosmetic finish for longer life.
