The wheel and rim repair process

  • STEP 1

    Wheel Straightening

    First, our wheel repair specialist tests the wheel to ensure it’s true center, it’s tolerance and level of stress to ensure the rim will balance to the rim’s original specifications. Some wheels may be off-round and will have to undergo a straightening and re-lathing process to ensure we obtain a truly centric balance and minimize or eliminate any vibrations an uneven rim may give you.

To repair rims or repair wheels bent by a sudden impact, we have straightening machines that we use in combination with good old fashion know-how. These unique machines are used to correct and straighten all kinds of defected steel and alloy rims ranging from 10 inches to 22 inches. Nothing is faster or better to fix a rim.
Effective rim restoration bring new life to your old wheels. To repair rims or repair wheels is not enough unless you fix a rim to its former glory. We have computerized color coding mixers that reads and produce the exact color shade of an OEM wheel from every make of cars. Not a fix rim or repair rim, but a rim restoration solution.
We can fix a rim to look as the first day it was made. Wheel reconditioning is usually employed on factory rims, to replace old or damaged OEM rims for reconditioned wheels that look as new, fix rims in collectible cars or give custom wheels a new look for show vehicles.
CNC machining is an important part of wheel repairs. Our state-of-the-art CNC wheel lathe shaves a very fine layer of aluminum from the entire face of the rim with exacting precision, producing a new finish that reflects the nature of the alloy. Most OEM rim wheel repair will need CNC Machining. It is an essential service to repair rim.
Alloy wheel polishing is one of the key ingredients of our alloy wheel rim repair services. Polishing is a labor intensive process, obtained with special compounds that buff the alloy to a crisp shine. Classic cars, hot-rods and collectible cars have polished wheels. As part of our rim wheel repair service we only use the finest and the most reliable polishing compounds available.
