Wheels are an essential part of a car. Not only do they affect appearance, but they also play a role in performance.
Over time, wheels can become scratched and dented, which can significantly reduce their value. Fortunately, there is a way to refurbish alloy wheels and bring them back to their former glory.
In this blog post, we will take a closer look at how much it costs to refurbish alloy wheels and what you can expect from the process. Read on for more information!
Why Refurbish Your Alloy Wheels?
There are several reasons why you might want to refurbish your alloy wheels. For starters, it can help to improve the appearance of your car. If your wheels are looking tired and worn, a fresh coat of paint can make a world of difference.
In addition, refurbishing your wheels can also help to protect them from further damage. By fixing any existing damage, you can help to prevent further wear and tear. This can be especially beneficial if you live in an area with a lot of potholes or rough terrain.
Finally, refurbishing your alloy wheels can also add value to your car. If you’re thinking about selling your car, or even if you just want to keep it in top condition, giving your wheels a makeover can be a smart investment.
The Process Of Refurbishing Your Alloy Wheels
There are a few different ways to refurbish your alloy wheels, but the method we use at JR Alloy Wheel Repair is;
- Tyre removal
- Chemical stripping
- Wheel repair and shot blasting
- Three-stage powder coating
- Oven curing
- Re-installation of tyre and balancing
Powder Coating Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
Alloy wheel powder coating is a decorative finish for alloy wheels. It’s sprayed on like traditional paint, however, it settles on the surface dry rather than liquid. It’s not until the coating is heated and treated that the paint “flows out” of the coating and forms a gel over the surface of the wheel.
Here at JR Alloy Wheel Repair, we offer a range of amazing different colours and finishes. From gloss black to candy red! Additionally, if you would like to see the colours we offer, swing by to see our colour range.
Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
This is an alloy wheel that has been put on a lathe and part of or the entire painted surface of the wheel machined off to leave a shiny alloy finish. A small part of the actual alloy is machined off to create this finish and it is then lacquered over to prevent corrosion.
Diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment is not suitable for all wheels as this depends on the profile of the face of the wheel, your Wheel Specialist technician will advise you if it is possible.
How Much Does It Cost To Refurbish Alloy Wheels?
The cost of refurbishing alloy wheels will vary depending on several factors, including the severity of the damage, the type of finish you want, and the number of wheels you need to be refurbished.
In general, you can expect to pay anywhere from £50 to £250 per wheel for a basic refurbishment. If you want a more premium finish, such as diamond cut or powder coating, the cost will be higher.
It’s also important to keep in mind that the cost of refurbishing alloy wheels will go up if you need to have multiple wheels done. Most companies offer discounts for bulk orders, but it’s still a good idea to factor in the additional expense when budgeting for the project.
