The types of damage we see most often are a result of a vehicle driving over a large pot hole or hitting a curb. Typically we can true and straighten the hub with the correct amount of force at precise angles. Sometimes it requires some milling on a lathe to dial in the exact trueness of the wheel so it will balance perfectly with no wobble.
For more rare wheels (wheels that are not OEM or are very hard to find) repair may be your only option. We can usually help you restore a wheel completely so you won’t have to give up the set of wheels just because one or two of them got damaged.
In rare cases, some wheels may require more extensive work. After it is sufficiently smoothed, it is handed over to the sanding station, which takes the surface to a smoother level.
A technician will begin by sanding a wheel prior to painting or polishing.
At this stage the material has been added, and basic shape attained. Now all that remains is to finish the surface to the desired grade. It can be polished to a mirror like shine, or left semi smooth to allow it to be painted. In this case the wheel is best polished to a shine.
The polishing station shown here to the left is where the wheel is further refined to take on a mirror like shine. Often polishing aluminum takes on the appearance of chrome or better. Call or come in to get a quote on having this work done on your wheels.
