Why do over have alloy wheels? Well, for the techies among you, alloy wheels are lighter than conventional steel wheels thus cutting down the car's 'un-sprung mass' which benefits handling and dynamics. They dissipate heat generated when braking more effectively but most of all, they can transform any car's appearance and look fairly.

So rather but oh so easily damaged!

Great care should be taken in case you hit a hump or hole when driving over humps and potholes, soft aluminium alloy is readily flattened. Much damage may be caused at slow speeds, so it is advisable when parking, not to run the kerbs up. A flattened front alloy wheel refurb Altrincham rim can cause steering wobble at slow speeds but similar damage on a back wheel may give rise to a drone .

You Have Been Warned!!!

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment

The resulting scuffs and scrapes are not bonny, destroy the appearance of your car, and when left unattended notably during winter, can get the wheel.

The expense of replacing the most basic factory fitted alloys can cost you at least GBP100, replacing wheels fitted to the BMWs, Mercedes, Audis and Porsches of this universe can set you back as much!


Relax, do not stress, most typical alloy wheel kerb scuffs and returned to original condition in less than 2hours for between GBP40 and GBP60 and scrapes can be removed by an alloy wheel refurbishment specialist. Oftentimes the work is completed on site at your convenience.

According to the degree of damage sustained, only damage on the wheel's region is sanded down, occasionally deep scratches might need to be full of a special alloy wheel gel. Most alloy wheel refurbishers mix their own paint to make sure an ideal colour match, and combine to leave an invisible repair.

Complete wheel refurbishment, where the tyre is removed, the wheel lacquered or blasted back to bare metal or stripped is usually carried out at workshop premises and sometimes needs 2/3 day turn around. The finished result yet, can be better than the first.

Alloy Wheel Care

Despite the fact that there are 'hundreds' of alloy wheel cleaners and polishers on the market, most top alloy wheel manufacturers advocate regular simple care and attention. Rinse off dirt and grit which may scratch the wheel, and after that simply wash with soapy water. Some recommend using a high quality car wax or specialist wheel wax to keep the glow and help grime and brake dust to slide off easily.
