Alloy wheels have taken over from standard steel wheels over the last number of years. Car manufacturers are starting to include them as ‘free added extras’ or ‘as standard’. It is easy to see why they have become so popular, they completely transform the look of your car, as well as improving fuel efficiency as they are generally much lighter than the steel wheels. But unfortunately, there is a downside. Despite being very strong, they can break easily due to being made from a softer and less durable material than steel wheels.
We all dread the day we accidentally scuff or scrape our pricey alloy wheels. The unpleasing appearance will leave you desperate to get booked in for a repair. The last thing we want is to have to replace the alloy as that can be very expensive! Thankfully a repair is a much cheaper option, especially when the alloy is only slightly damaged.
Well, the price will vary depending on the extent of the damage.
For a full, professional refurb which includes a strip, shot blast, clean up and powder coat of entire wheel can cost anywhere between £50-£100.
Or maybe you just want a touch up of scratches and kerbing? The average cost of this alloy wheel repair type is around £40. But this will not last as long as powder coating!
Diamond polishing is a method used to keep the original finish of the current trend in alloy wheels which can cost an average of £80.
