Can you match the paint colour?
Yes we can. We have a wide range of paint finishes and we will aim to match it to your original finish as close as we can.
What is the best way to look after my alloys?
Quite simply a mild detergent like fairy liquid and hot water with a clean sponge. You will be amazed at how easily the dirt lifts of our powder coated finishes. We do not recommend the use of alloy wheel cleaners as most of these are acid based and will in time attack and break down the lacquer coatings. There are many specially formulated wheel waxes available which you apply approximately every 6 weeks which will prevent any break dust and dirt sticking to your wheels. Always allow your wheels to cool down before cleaning them.
Do you provide a courier service?
No we do not! But you are more than welcome to send your wheels via courier service to us we cannot be held responsible for any damage caused to your wheels whilst with a courier. We do provide a collection and delivery service locally.
How long does it take?
Most fully refurbished wheels can be done the same day as long as they have been pre- booked in and delivered to us no later than 9am. Smart repairs usually take 1-3 hours.
Do you do motorcycle wheels?
Yes we do. You will need to have the tyres, spindles and bearings removed before you bring them to us.
Can you refurbish split rims?
We can usually refurbish 2 piece split rims.
What is powder coating?
This is a method of painting by which electrically charged powder paint is applied via a high
voltage low ampere power unit to a grounded work piece i.e. alloy wheel. Electrostatic attraction
holds the powder onto the coated part. The coated part is then heated in an industrial oven at
200 degrees which then melts/fuses the powder onto the alloy wheel. This results in a very
durable, scratch resistant high gloss finish, which is 3 times stronger than solvent based wet
paints. Unlike wet paints it contains no solvents and is therefore very environmentally friendly.
