Our vastly experienced technicians cover all aspects of repair work, while our alloy wheel refurbishment services include powder coating, diamond cutting and alloy wheel straightening. With our range of services, decades of experience and cutting-edge equipment, it’s no wonder we have become the number one choice for motorists in York.

We cannot overstate the importance of regular investment in the expertise of an alloy wheel specialist. Below, we have explored how you will always benefit in the long-term by visiting our alloy wheel repair company on a regular basis.


Do I Really Need an Alloy Wheel Refurbishment?

Yes, and for various reasons too. Naturally, the aesthetic appeal of alloy wheels is the primary motivation. If you invest in alloy wheels, it’s fair to assume you value the appearance of your vehicle. But as the miles clock up on the roads of York, so does wear and tear, not to mention the effects of corrosion.

Incidents like kerbing or pothole impact also cause significant damage to wheels too, some of which may require alloy wheel repair. In less severe cases, The Wheel Guru performs various alloy wheel refurbishment services, including powder coating, diamond cutting and alloy wheel straightening, to keep wheels looking fresh, clean and unique.

In addition, you might have an eye on selling your car in the near future. As such, you want to ensure it retains a high resale value. Damaged alloys alert potential buyers to a less-than-careful owner. In turn, this can raise concerns about other unknown problems the car may have.

Corrosion to the inside of an alloy wheel also leads to air loss, tyre damage and wheel alignment issues. Undertaking alloy wheel repair and refurbishment services, then, ticks far more boxes than you may realise.

Can I Just Repair and Refurbish Them Myself?

There’s nothing to stop you or any other York motorist trying DIY alloy wheel refurbishment. But, of course, this approach only represents a false economy. On the most basic level, our services, be it powder coating, diamond cutting or alloy wheel straightening, strip back old coatings or top layers of alloy. We then apply a brand-new coating, often with a bespoke design, that provides long-lasting durability and stunning aesthetics.

In order to achieve this, an individual would need years of experience, specialist equipment, industry-leading products and access to manufacturer’s coatings and OEM finishes.

The best a DIY alloy wheel refurbishment or repair can hope to achieve is a very short-term cosmetic improvement. But any finish will soon degrade and leave you back at square one already significantly out of pocket.

Visiting a proven, time-served specialist remains the most sensible long-term investment for alloy wheel repair and refurbishment.

The Wheel Guru produces immaculate results for motorists in York at the first time of asking. We honour guarantees on all completed work, from alloy wheel straightening to extensive repairs. This includes 12 months on powder coating and 6 months on diamond cutting.

Alloy Wheel Straightening

Falling into the same bracket as alloy wheel refurbishment and repair, alloy wheel straightening also ensures you don’t need to buy a new set of wheels. Specifically targeting buckles and bends, straightening removes unsightly blemishes. This returns your wheel’s original appearance without any compromise in its integrity or strength.

Alloy wheel straightening also offers impressive versatility. When complete, we can apply the exact same finish to match your other wheels. Alternatively, we can perform a complete overhaul of all your wheels with various powder coating options. As with all our alloy wheel repairs, we tailor our approach to suit your tastes.

Powder Coating

Whether in Yourk or the neighbouring areas, some of the most appealing benefits of powder coating your alloys include:

• Thousands of colours to choose from
• One of the most durable, resilient finishes possible
• Longer lasting results compared to standard paint
• A typical one-coat completion for quick turnarounds
• The application process creates a smooth, even surface
• With few volatile organic compounds, powder coating is environmentally safe

Diamond Cutting

Like our wider range of alloy wheel refurbishment and repairs, the diamond cutting process has numerous benefits. The most obvious of these is the dazzling appearance the process produces. This glass-like aesthetic creates a truly showstopping look, ensuring you stand out as you drive in and around Huddersfield.

Diamond cut wheels also have an impressively light weight, particularly when compared to steel equivalents. As a result, diamond cutting alloy wheels delivers an array of benefits such as a more responsive drive, improved acceleration, increased brake clearance and better fuel economy; all of which help to avoid alloy wheel straightening, or more extensive alloy wheel repairs, in the near future.
