How to Repair Van Alloy Wheels
Over time van alloy wheels can become damaged. They can get scratched, scuffed or just worn down. But, it’s important to book an alloy repair as soon as possible after you spot the damage. This may help avoid any further damage and will improve your vehicles appearance. It can be difficult to know whether you need a professional alloy repair or if you can do a DIY job to solve the problem. So, we have put together a couple of different options for repairing van alloy wheels to make your life a little easier.
Option 1 – DIY Alloy Repair
If you feel confident with automotive DIY and have a lot of experience with car detailing, this option may be for you. However, if you are not confident, we recommend skipping to option 2. To repair van alloy wheels at home, you will need all the correct tools, a dry working area, plenty of patience and time as it may take longer than expected.
Even after allowing for all those factors, please note that the alloy repair may not always go to plan and you could still end up having to take it to a professional to fix. We would always recommend getting your alloys repaired by a professional if the damage is anything more than a few light scratches. If the damage is minimal and you feel you are confident enough to give it a go, please check out our guides below:
