REPAIR SOLUTIONS

There are many things that can damage expensive alloy wheels, curbs, potholes, debris, road hazards etc.  Repairs for damaged wheels fall into two categories:

  • STRAIGHTENING may entail welding and machining but no stripping, polishing nor refinishing. Our straightening “while you wait” service is available at Wheel Collision and the Xpress Repair Centre's situated in select TYRES & MORE® and Tiger Wheel & Tyre stores.  

  • FULL REFURBISHMENT repairs which may entail straightening, welding, machining, polishing and refinishing which results in a re-manufactured wheel at a fraction of the cost of a new wheel. Full Refurbishments are done at the Wheel Collision Centre's. Click here to read more about the Rim Repair process.

 

All wheels we repair or refurbish are x-rayed before and after work has been carried out to ensure that the integrity of the wheel  has not been compromised
