So you bought some new rims…Protect your investment!
Alloy Wheel Repair may not cost you as much as you might expect. In today’s guest article we will discuss how you can possibly save money by repairing your alloy rims yourself!
Alloy Wheels are an expensive but worthy investment, so it makes sense to look after them as best you can. However it’s inevitable that at some point in your driving life you will get the odd knock, scuff and chip from curbs whilst parking or stone and gravel kickups from other vehicles passing. Whilst the scuffs and chips don’t affect the alloys performance they do make the alloy appearance look flawed and messy and can ruin the vehicle image. Many people just live with this problem because they think that it’s too expensive to be repaired or fixed, and if you don’t look in the right places or for the right people it can be.
DIY Alloy Wheel Repair?
There’s a surprisingly simple solution to the problem of alloy scuffs, and many products available that will fix the problem quickly and effortlessly. Alu Scratch is certainly one of the market leaders. As with similar products alu scratch is specifically designed to repair surface damage to metal or aluminum products (so not just alloy repair) however this is the purpose it was created for. Almost all cosmetic damage to the alloys can be repaired by the kit, and in most cases the repair can be done with out removing the wheel. All you have to do is clean the area around the chip or scuff, mix the relevant components of the kit together and apply into the chip, when this is done to a satisfactory level apply the reacting agent that sets the material hard and decreases the curing time. It sets in about 5 mins and is ready to sand down. Often spray paint is used to finish the color but this is not always necessary. This system of alloy wheel repair is available from many other manufactures at very reasonable prices, and is usually much cheaper that having them repaired using the same method professionally or sandblasted, you’ll have them looking as good as new in no time, every time you chip them.
