We offer alloy wheel repairs across North and West Yorkshire due to cracked alloy wheels becoming an increasingly common problem these days due to poor road conditions. Often the cracks are discovered when a slow puncture occurs. Cracks can be repaired and you can still keep the wheels strength and integrity.
We can offer alloy wheel repair using our specialist TIG welders. We check the alloy wheel for cracks, stress fractures or kerb damage. First step of the repair process is to grind both sides of the crack, this is to remove any contamination therefore giving a clean weld. Step 2 is to TIG weld inside and out of the alloy wheel, once the weld is complete it is as strong as a new wheel. To finish off we dress the weld back on the inside of the wheel which allows the tire to re-seal correctly.
We also offer Alloy wheel straightening across North and West Yorkshire, this starts by mounting the wheel onto our straightening machine. We heat the affected area using a small propane torch, this stops the wheel cracking during the straightening process. Hydraulic cylinders are used to press the wheel back into shape, the wheel is then spun and checked for straightness using a dial test indicator.
