Alloy Wheel Refurbishment FAQ

Allow Wheel Refurbishment FAQ

What is better powder coating or wet paint?

Without a doubt powder coating is how wheels should be refurbished, this is a powered paint which is sprayed on to a hot wheel and then baked in the oven, it offers a far stronger and more durable finish. Every single major car manufacturer powder coats their wheels when they leave the factory.

Do you take the tyres off?

Yes absolutely! This is essential to get a good finish, especially around the tyre valve. We chemically strip our wheels and then sand blast them to get the best possible finish, this cannot be done with the tyres on the car. Do not settle for a touch up job where the tyres are left on, get it done right!

My wheels have corrosion can you take care of that?

Of course we can, we fully remove the corrosion by chemically stripping your wheels and then sand blasting them for the perfect finish. It is essential that the corrosion is removed, it cannot just be sanded back and painted over, it will just come back. Our process fully eliminates it. If you have corrosion on your wheels only a chemical strip with cure it.

Is your work guaranteed?

Yes, all our wheel refurbishments come with a 12 month guarantee.

Do you ‘smart repair’ alloy wheels?

We do not offer this service, choosing instead to fully refurbish the wheel. A smart repair involves sanding back part of the wheel and blowing some wet paint and lacquer over the face of the wheel without removing the tyre. This is no substitute for a full professional powder coat refurbishment. Get it done right the first time by using us!
