Let’s start with the basics, shall we? Alloy wheel refurbishment simply means repairing your wheel alloys instead of replacing them. At Autofusion, we can take care of scratches, dings, dents, and other damage to your wheel alloys. The process begins by removing the tyre or tyres in question from your car. Then, we will give the wheel a deep clean. That means removing all the dirt, mud, debris, and grime from the wheel. If you have any dents or scratches on your wheel, these will be taken care of with filler.
Then, your alloy wheel will be cured and sanded. The next step is applying the coat of paint, which we will consult you about. You can choose to match the colour of the wheels you already have in place, or you can go with something completely different. Finally, there’s lacquering, curing, and polishing to make sure that your alloy wheel is as shiny as it was the day that your car rolled off the production line.
If you have damage to your alloy wheels, then getting an alloy wheel refurbishment will be significantly cheaper than paying for an entirely new set. With a refurbishment, you can also make changes to the colour and choose from other customisation options. It is also worth noting that refurbishing your alloy wheels is not just about improving the way they look. You will be greatly improving their durability, so you do not need to worry about lasting damage.
However, it is important to note that severe damage to your alloy wheels may make refurbishment impossible. In this case, paying for alloy replacements is the only way to go.
The way that most people damage their alloy wheels is by scraping them while parking up against the curb. Everyone knows the sound of that screech all too well, but a lot of the damage to your wheel alloys comes about from simple wear and tear.
The reason why this happens so frequently is that your alloy wheels are made of a different kind of metal to the body of your car. The metal on alloy wheels is softer, designed specifically to improve the performance of your tires and to turn and bend more easily, as well as preventing your brakes from overheating. As a result, they can incur damage more easily.
At Autofusion, we know how much your car means to you, and we know how important it is that you can rest assured that your car is operating at the highest level possible when it comes to safety and performance. When you bring your car in for alloy wheel replacement in Glasgow, we will give you the very best customer care and vehicle service.
We will be able to advise you on how long the process is going to take (it can vary from case to case depending on the type and extent of the damage). We will also be able to take care of any other vehicle maintenance issue, including tyre realignment and vehicle servicing.
