How to Maintain Your Alloy Wheels
Leave It to the Pros

Repairing, refurbishing and fitting diamond alloys is a complex task. It requires a professional with a specialist skillset. When performed by an inexperienced or underqualified alloy wheel refurbishment company or mechanic, you run the risk of significant wheel damage.

Aspects of diamond cutting include:

  • Inspecting damage with an expert eye for detail
  • Complete removal of one or multiple wheels
  • A chemical stripping and welding process
  • Use of state-of-the-art machinery for flawless results

As with powder coating, alloy wheel straightening or any form of alloy wheel repair, always pick a proven professional.stunning custom surfaces.

This gives you the option to combine the best of both worlds: undoubted safety and slick aesthetics.

The speed of the turnaround also separates the good from the great. Alloy wheel repair experts identify issues quickly, telling you exactly what’s wrong and how long it will take to rectify. Whether you need an alloy wheel straightening or only cosmetic work, a specialist won’t waste your time.

Diamond Cut Alloys Need Aftercare

While our alloy wheel refurbishment team performs diamond cutting to exceptional standards, you must look after them once you leave our workshop to retain their aesthetic for longer.

The approach for aftercare differs depending on how you use your vehicle. We happily provide recommendations on how to keep your diamond alloys in great condition, but we prefer to give personalised information relevant to your situation.

There’s no one-size-fits-all solution. We treat you as an individual with unique requirements, so we address your aftercare needs during an initial consultation. Our company applies the same approach across our full range of alloy wheel repair work, from powder coating to alloy wheel straightening.

You Can Have Alloys Cut More Than Once

Some may claim that diamond cutting represents a one-time procedure – but this is usually incorrect. While it’s true each alloy wheel can only undergo the process a finite number of times, the amount depends on the integrity and strength of your wheel.

For example, some wheels can only receive this alloy wheel refurbishment procedure once, while others can easily receive two or three services.

You can visit our workshop in Leeds for advice tailored to your own specific wheels.

From alloy wheel straightening to powder coating, no matter what service you approach us for, The Wheel Guru always provides a personal approach that puts your satisfaction first.

Diamond Cutting | Refurbishment Tips and How to Prevent Alloy Wheel Damage

Are you considering alloy wheel repair and refurbishment options for the first time? As a motorist, you can rely on The Wheel Guru for fast, convenient and affordable services, from alloy wheel straightening to diamond cutting and powder coating. We recognise that when you purchase a new car, or your first set of alloys, you’re hypersensitive to even the smallest scuffs and bumps. In these early days, if you notice any type of surface damage, your mind immediately turns to alloy wheel refurbishment work.

However, this isn’t a bad approach. As time goes on, you might start to ignore dents and scratches on your wheels. If left untreated, these small issues can lead to much bigger problems. As with anything in life, the larger the alloy wheel repairs, the bigger the bill.

So, while you may not need to obsess over every bump you experience on the roads, a certain amount of vigilance and proactive maintenance goes a long way to keeping your alloy wheel refurbishment costs to a minimum.

If you’d like to discuss options for your own alloy wheel straightening, refurbishment or repair services, please contact us.

The Future is Coming

The reality is gas prices should be much more expensive then they are because we’re not incorporating the true damage to the environment and the hidden costs of mining oil and transporting it to the U.S. Whenever you have an unpriced externality, you have a bit of a market failure, to the degree that eternality remains unpriced.

How to Maintain Your Alloy Wheels

Whether you’ve invested in diamond cutting work or powder coating finishes, there’s one thing to keep in mind: thorough maintenance saves you money. Simple cleaning on a regular basis not only removes dirt and abrasive elements, it also gives you the opportunity to inspect your wheels for early signs of damage.

An initial rinse cleans the surface, while a towel dry will prevent water spots from forming. Specialist alloy wheel cleaners can then help to protect your wheels’ finish. And don’t cut any corners – brake dust has a habit of collecting in wheel wells, lug nuts and between spokes.

This proactive attention ensures you stay on top of the daily demands facing your alloys as you go about your business. In the long run, this can make all the difference between a simple alloy wheel straightening or a more extensive alloy wheel repair.

How to Maintain Your Alloy Wheels

When in the expert hands of The Wheel Guru, refurbishment work follows these basic steps.

  1. We remove the wheels and assess the damage. Our experienced professionals can then determine the scope of the alloy wheel repair work needed.
  2. We then clean your wheels of all dirt and other substances. This allows us to strip it down to the bare alloy. At this point, we can also remove more serious surface damage using CNC machinery. If requested, we can perform a diamond cutting or powder coating service.
  3. Next, we refit your wheels so that you can pick up your car and drive back to your home. If needed, we can straighten, balance and re-torque your tyres.

Of course, every alloy wheel refurbishment or repair has its own unique qualities, so we tailor our solutions to suit your needs. You can rest assured that, whether you need an alloy wheel straightening followed by a custom finish or a comprehensive alloy wheel repair, we deliver a fully bespoke solution.

If you visit our Leeds workshop for a diamond cutting, we request that you let us know how many times you’ve had the same process performed. Each cut removes a layer of alloy from the wheel’s face, so we can only perform it a finite number of times.

This does not apply to powder coating or painted finishes.
