Alloy Wheel Refurbishment – Costs and Considerations

At Alloy Hub, we specialise in transforming your wheels to a like-new condition with custom colour options tailored to your vehicle if required.

We provide a seamless process from start to finish, offering competitive rates and a high-quality finish.

When considering alloy wheel refurbishment, weighing the costs and considerations involved is vital. The price tag can shift depending on the extent of damage and the specific finish you desire. Minor scratches might be cheaper, but deeper dents or larger wheels can increase the cost.

Common Types of Alloy Wheel Damage

We often encounter three main types of damage on alloy wheels: scratches, dents, and chips.

Scratches occur from poor maintenance or cleaning.

Dents, often caused by potholes, may require more intensive repair techniques like welding and reshaping. We will not repair the wheel if we feel that its structural integrity has been compromised.

Chips are commonly caused by stones coming into contact with the rim.

Other Alloy Wheel companies often offer a ‘smart repair service’, refurbishing wheels within a few hours by simply covering over scuffs and scratches rather than restoring them to their bare metal state. While these quick refurbishments might be convenient, it’s important to note that they may not provide a lasting solution. Within a few months, cracks may start to show when exposed to external elements, potentially leading to the need for another repair.

Diamond Cut Refurbishment

Diamond cut restoration involves precision machining to eliminate thin metal layers, achieving a top-quality, polished finish. This intricate process is highly technical, requiring specialised equipment and skilled technicians.

First, the wheel is stripped down to its bare metal, then carefully machined on a lathe to guarantee even removal of the damaged surface. The result is a clean, sleek look that enhances the aesthetic of your vehicle.

It’s important to note that this method is particularly suitable for wheels with existing diamond-cut finishes. The process can be repeated, but excessive refurbishing may weaken the wheel.

For best results, ensure the wheel is cleaned correctly and protected post-refurbishment to maintain that top-quality finish.

Refurbishment Process

Our dedication to quality encompasses a meticulous wheel refurbishment process that restores your wheels to their original, immaculate condition.

We utilise advanced refurbishment techniques, returning each wheel to a bare metal state for a thorough blasting. Necessary repairs are expertly handled before applying powder coating, guaranteeing visual appeal and durability.

Powder coating benefits include a durable, consistent finish that is resistant to chips and corrosion, offering significant longevity advantages. Our process isn’t just about aesthetics; it’s designed for durability.

For maintenance tips, regular cleaning and inspection can extend the lifespan of your refurbished wheels. At Alloy Hub, we ensure your wheels look and perform like new every time.
