In almost all cases, we fully refurbish your wheels, with the tyre off. You can bring your wheels to us with or without the tyres, we can also strip and refit all the tyres and re-balance the different wheels.
The wheels usually are gently blasted by hand to remove all previous layers of lacquer and paint to obtain an expertly smooth metal surface in preparation for wheel coatings. If the wheels are in a very poor condition they may be stripped through a chemically prior to blasting. The wheels are prepared, dressed and filled to deal with any damage to the rim edges and the face.
Next the wheels are gently heat treated to remove any air from the alloy and a first stage powder coat finish is applied and then cured for a set time period. After this if the wheel is having a “special” or “bespoke” finish the wet-in-wet procedure takes place The wheels are also automatically subjected to a further thermal treatment. The lacquer coat is not only applied to enhance the finish but to protect the alloy wheel against environmental influences at all points.
