Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Services Are Fast, Affordable, And Provide Terrific Results
23 November 2012
Do you love the alloy wheels on your vehicles? You are not alone, as this is one of the most popular car accessories there is. They add a lot in terms of style and visual appeal, but they are very expensive. If you get a ding, dent, scrape, or scratch in one of those wheels, you will end up paying a lot to replace them. Fortunately, that's not the only solution. Alloy wheel refurbishment can make your wheels look like new and for about half the price of replacing them.
The process is one that should only be done by technicians that have been highly trained and have a lot of experience, though. It's not something that should be tried by those who don't know what they are doing because it involves removing the damaged part of the wheel. If too much is removed, then the integrity of the wheel can be compromised. This is not an area of your vehicle that you want to be weaker than it was before.
Once the damage is removed, the technician applies epoxy, but it's not your normal epoxy. It's a very strong epoxy that will strengthen the area and will set quickly. The alloy wheel repair technician can also sand the epoxy down so that it is level with the other part of the wheel. This makes all of the areas level. When the primer and the paint are applied, there should be no way to tell that the repair was done. Your wheel should look brand new.
Because the technician doesn't have to take the wheel off of your car, this entire process only takes about an hour. It's very fast. The technicians drive mobile work trucks that have everything they need inside to fix your wheels. All they need is electricity for their tools and space for their work trucks. They can do the work at your home or office, so it is very convenient, as well.
Ask your friends and family who they have used in the past and would recommend. This is usually the best way to find a great company to take care of your wheels. However, it's always best to make sure you get a guarantee on any repair that is done and a quote before any work begins. You don't want hidden fees and charges in your final bill and the technician should honor the quote he gave you before the work began. The guarantee should cover the repair work if anything went wrong.
