Taking Our Work Seriously With A Smile


Minor Alloy Wheel RepairsAlloy Wheel Repairs | Scuffs, Kerbing And Scratches

From time to time, we all have those little misjudgements and unfortunately catch the alloy wheel on a kerb, leaving a scuff mark or a scratch which needs minor wheel repairs. This not only ruins your day, but also spoils the look of the wheels and  can lead to corrosion and further damage to the alloy.

This is the most common type of repair which we carry out, where the majority of the wheel is in sound condition, and only a small section of the wheel needs to be repaired.

Repairing Kerb Damage To Wheels:

With the alloy wheel repair service we offer here at Ace Car Care, this sort of minor wheel damage can usually be repaired with 1 day, and if you have a spare, we’ll even change it over for you so that you can still be mobile.

A lot of modern vehicles don’t have a spare wheel any more (puncture foam or the like is now used) but we can still get you back on the road with the minimum of fuss. Just make a booking with us, drop your car off on the morning of the booking & it’ll be ready to pick up that same late afternoon.

Alloy Wheel Scratches:

Because the majority of the alloy wheel is undamaged, we only need to repair a small area and blend the repair into the good parts of the alloy. This enables us to get the repairs done quickly and cost effectively. The normal 9 step process is as follows,

  1. Push tyre away from rim and mask up
  2. Clean & prep face of wheel ready for repair
  3. Sand/grind out damage as necessary
  4. Fill damaged area to rebuild correct profile if necessary
  5. Prime damaged area
  6. Paint damaged area & blend into wheel
  7. Lacquer the front face of the alloy wheel
  8. Cure painted finish under heat lamps
  9. De-mask and re-inflate tyre

 

Once these processes have been carried out, the alloy wheel repair is complete and it is ready to be fitted back onto the vehicle.
