Our processes

 

Stage 1: Wheel stripping   process1
This process involves removing the tyre, valve, weights and any stick on decals. Wheels with tyre pressure sensor equipment are marked to ensure correct replacement, if we are aware at delivery, of the original positions on the vehicle. The wheel is then fully stripped of its old finish.

 

Stage 2: Shot blasting   process1
The wheel is then shot blasted to remove any corrosion and pitting in the surface; this also highlights any imperfections which can then be dressed (dents, deep scratches and kerb damage). Please be aware that we do not repair wheels that have been seriously damaged (e.g. bent, cracked, buckled or badly dented) as this will affect the wheel's structural integrity and it should be replaced.

 

Stage 3: Repair to damaged surface   process3
The wheel is now completely clean and we can identify the damage to the surface. Using a various processes the wheels are then dressed to deal with any kerb damage etc.

 

Stage 4: Powder coating & colour application   process6
The wheels are then preheated to a set temperature & time, this allows any air trapped in the cast aluminium to be released. The whole wheel is then primer powder coated and cured in a high temperature oven. The colour you have chosen is then applied. A final coat of powder lacquer is applied and cured to the whole wheel, to ensure it is fully protected from the elements. The lacquer used is a particularly robust coating, and makes cleaning the wheels easy, once back in daily use.

 

Stage 5: Refitting and balancing   process5
The tyre is refitted & balanced using all new weights and valves and fitted back to the vehicle, depending on what type of service you have chosen.
