What are alloy wheels?

Alloy wheels, as it says in the name, are wheels made of an alloy of metals. These metals typically include magnesium or aluminium.

Why are alloy wheels popular?

They look good

Alloy wheels are a popular choice because they not only have an attractive appearance but they are also extremely customisable in the process of painting and powder coating, enabling car owners to choose an aesthetic that complements their car.

Lightweight design

Alloy wheels tend to be lightweight, which cuts down the use of fuel and improves the car’s performance as braking and acceleration is better.


Alloy wheels are also more resistant to corrosion and dust, meaning that they tend to have a longer lifespan and do not need to be repaired as often (although they can get scratched up quite easily).

How do we repair alloy wheels?

Our 5 step process

Firstly, we remove the alloy wheels from the car and the tyres from the wheel.
Then, we strip the bare wheel down to its bare bones, making sure that all corrosion, rust and dirt are removed from the wheel.
We sand down the wheel to ensure that the wheel is super smooth.
We apply the paint, starting with the base layer – typically a metallic silver or black.
We leave the paint to dry and then reattach the tyre to the wheel and the wheel to the car.

Delays can happen but we’ll keep you informed if they do.

Alloy wheels are often scratched and chipped from general wear and tear but can also frequently become dented after an unfortunate collision with a kerb or pothole.

After an alloy wheel repair, maintenance is key to keeping them in good condition. We recommend washing your wheels regularly, however if your alloy wheels have recently undergone a repair, you should wait five days before cleaning or applying a finish to the wheels.

This time is needed to allow any paint to cure after a repair.

There are a range of alloy wheel cleaners to choose from but we would advise against choosing a cleaner that has a rough quality.

Abrasive cleaners can wear down the alloy surface over time and so we recommend using a non-caustic cleaner to eliminate this risk.

Yes, you can remove scratches, dents, and scuffs from alloy wheels – no problem. You may be able to repair minor scuffs yourself with the right tools, but for bigger scratches – or simply to get a professional result – contact us today for a quote.

Easy – by following the steps above. If you’re particularly handy, you may be able to DIY – but for most folks we’d recommend bringing your car in to the professionals to fix corroded alloy wheels to achieve optimal results.
