How does mobile alloy wheel repair work?
Usually, a car brought in will have the wheels removed off the body of the car and worked on separately, sometimes removing the tyre off of the alloy depending on the overall extent of the damage to the alloy.
However, during a mobile repair, the car stays on the ground and the wheels stay attached.
- The tyre around the damaged alloy is deflated, allowing for the bead attaching the tyre to the alloy to be broken.
- The tyre is then moved back from the edge of the alloy to allow for the outer alloys to be also repaired as these areas are the most dangerous parts to be damaged as it could lead to getting a blown tyre.
- Once the alloy has been fully checked for damage and then fixed up, a primer is used to then apply a base coat and colour which perfectly matches the colour before the refurbishment process takes place.
- The alloys are then lacquered to guarantee a high quality and professional finish which ensures to keep the alloy intact.
- The tyre is then inflated to the correct tyre pressure and fitted back to the alloy.
The repair work has then been completed on your alloy wheel to a showroom level standard.
Should I repair my alloys myself?
Using an alloy wheel repair kit, which can be bought in certain stores, means that there is a possibility that you could repair your alloy wheels yourself.
