What’s the process?

The easiest way to explain the repair process is via illustration:

  1. We begin by fully cleaning it to remove all traces of grime and dirt. This will reveal the full extent of the damage and scratches to be repaired.

  1. We then carefully dry the alloy wheel and mask off the tyre, to protect it during the repair process.

Lightly sanding the damaged area

  1. Next, we lightly sand the damaged area before applying fillers to the scratches and scuffs. Once cured, this is sanded again ready for primer and paint application. The technician will colour match the alloy wheel with the correct paint, which is sprayed over the damaged area and blended into the original wheel colour.
  2. This in turn is then lacquered to a high gloss finish, cured and polished.
