Are buyers repairable or is an expensive replacement consistently necessary? Who can to be turned by the car owner for unbiased guidance and professional repairs? Read On

What is it 'wheely' all about?

Why do over 50% of all new cars have alloy wheels? They dissipate heat generated when braking efficiently but most of all, they may transform any car's appearance and look quite.

So pretty but oh so easily damaged!

Relax, don't stress, most typical alloy wheel kerb scuffs and scrapes can be removed by an alloy wheel refurbishment specialist and returned to initial condition in less than 2hours for between GBP40 and GBP60. In many cases the work is completed on site.

Depending on the amount of damage endured, exclusively the region of damage on the wheel is sanded down, occasionally deep scratches may need to be stuffed with a special alloy wheel gel. Most alloy wheel refurbishers blend to leave an invisible repair, and mix their particular paint to guarantee an ideal colour match.

Total wheel refurbishment, where the tyre is removed, the wheel smashed or stripped back to bare metal before being painted or lacquered is normally carried out at workshop premises and sometimes requires 2/3 day turn around. The finished result nonetheless, can be better than the original.
