Diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment is a mobile service we offer to customers across the North West. We can carry out repairs to diamond cut alloys and we can re polish your alloys at your chosen location.
We have been providing diamond cut alloy wheel repairs for the last 7 years and were the very first alloy wheel refurbishment company that could do this via a mobile means, we still are in fact one of the only alloy wheel refurbishment companies in the UK that have the expertise and know how to offer repairs to diamond cut alloys as a mobile service.
Common Problem With Diamond Cut Alloys
Diamond cut alloys are prone to corrosion issues. If your car has had these alloys fitted from new then you may be able to claim for new alloys under your warranty so long as they are not kerbed, please feel free to call us for any advise relating to warranty issues as one of our specialist areas is vehicle manufacturers warranty policies. White specs will start to appear on the alloys normally around the area where the bolts go or around the outer rim. They sometimes look like spiders webs and then eventually as they get worse they blacken and start to flake.
What Causes Corrosion on Diamond Cut Alloys
To understand what causes the corrosion you must first understand how these alloys are manufactured. They are machine lathed and then a type of plastic coating is applied over the lathed area. The coating is quite brittle. When you have tyres changed the process used to remove the tyres can break the seal behind the edge of the alloy. Once this seal is broken water can get between the coating and lathed area and create little white water marked areas. The corrosion around the wheel bolts is normally caused when removing the bolts, if a torque gun is used it can quite easily damage the plastic seal which then allows water ingress between the plastic and the lathed area.
How We Repair Diamond Cut Alloys
Please note we do not laith the alloys we use our own method of polishing the alloys that gives a very similar effect to diamond cut alloys, it is a process that we recommend rather than sending the alloys away or replacing. Some times on very close inspection you may see evidence of where the repair has taken place but if you stand a foot away and look at the alloys, you will not be able to see the difference.
Our Warranty On Diamond Cut Alloys
Due to the on going problem of theses wheels we are unable to offer any form of warranty but we are confident in our repair process and give you plenty of guidelines of how to take care of your alloys once you have had them repaired by us. As long as you follow our guidelines you should not encounter any further problems with them.
Our mobile diamond cut alloy wheel refurbishment service has been called up on by some of the largest car dealerships in the North West to carry out these repairs such as WILLIAMS BMW, AUDI CREWE AUDI STOKE, VOLVO STOKE, MERCEDES BOLTON AND BLACKPOOL and CHRYSLER BURY.
We recommend that you do not use wheel acid to clean your alloys once we have completed the repairs as this will sometimes leave a blemished effect on where the repairs have been carried out, this can easily be rectified by just using some car wax to re-polish the area. We also advise that coming up to the winter months that you use either autosol or a high grade car wax on the diamond cut area to help protect it from road salt.
