Alloy Wheel Refurbishments -- Don't Spend Your Money On New Wheels
2 September 2012
Alloy wheels look fantastic and are becoming a very popular auto accessory. These wheels add a lot of flair to almost any vehicle and are also a good investment. However, when alloy wheels get banged up, scratched, scraped, and dinged, they really start to look awful. What once was a gorgeous part of your car now needs a new look. The answer lies in alloy wheel refurbishments.
You no longer have to replace alloy wheels when they start to look bad. Alloy wheel repair is one of the fastest growing components of the auto repair industry. Alloy wheels are expensive to replace, but repairing alloy wheels is much easier on your wallet. In fact, you can save more than fifty percent over the replacement costs.
The process for alloy wheel refurbishment should not be attempted by someone who is not experienced in the repair. However, you will find there are many companies that will come to you to effect the repair. These mobile alloy wheel repair companies have all the equipment they need on their work trucks; however, you will need to make sure they can access a power point. The refurbishment process doesn't even require that the wheel be taken off your vehicle.
The dings, dents, scrapes and scratches are removed with a small grinder. A very strong, special epoxy is used to fill in the low spots on the wheels after grinding. Once it hardens, the wheel is actually stronger than it was before the damage occurred. The areas that have the epoxy are on are sanded smooth. Then the technicians apply two coats of lacquer and a coat of paint. The refurbishment process is complete. Your wheel looks terrific again, but it's also stronger than before.
The company you choose for repairing your alloy wheels should provide you with a complimentary quote for the repair. In addition, you should always ask if the work is guaranteed. These companies can also help you with a wide range of other services for other areas on your car, such as bumper repair, car seat repair, and minor car paint repair. However, it is worth your time to check out any company you are considering. Experience and training is very important because your car could end up looking worse than before the repair if the technician doesn't know what he is doing. Make sure your car looks fantastic after you spend your money on alloy wheel refurbishment.
