Diamonds are a wheel’s best friend – Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel Repair

There is nothing like an amazing alloy wheel to really set off a car. Look at those little beauties – fantastic, aren’t they. Delicate yet strong enough to support the weight of an 1800 KG GT car travelling at 180 MPH. Pretty impressive.

Now imagine kerbing them……

 

Once you’re over the horror of that thought let’s take a closer look at the detail.

Who would you entrust to repair your beautiful wheel – and how would they repair it?

Alloy wheel designs have become more and more elaborate as technology advances, and manufacturers are asking more and more of them as the power and performance of cars increase. This means that a correct repair is critical for safety and for the longevity of your alloy wheel.

Diamond cut alloy wheels offer a particular challenge for repairers – unless they have a Diamond Cutting CNC Alloy Wheel Lathe.

Computer-controlled, the lathe is able to map the alloy wheel’s profile digitally and shave a very thin layer of alloy from the surface of an alloy wheel, returning them to their former glory. Once the process is complete the surface is sealed in a  high-performance lacquer to protect the exposed alloy.

 

Not all wheels can be diamond cut so we also offer alternative methods of repair. If you do need to have an alloy wheel repair we always recommend that you speak to a professional – your wheels are far too important a component of your car to cut corners with (pun intended)….
