Alloy Rim Repairs
Did you know that there are many different finishes to alloy rims? Alloy rims come in all kinds of finishes which include painted, powder coated, anodised, machine face, shadow chrome, Two-Toned (machine face and painted) and ‘chrome’ (chrome plated).
Painted Rim Machine Face Rim Shadow Chrome Rim Two-Toned Rim
Note: Most machine face rims are two-toned rims in that the machine face finish is to the front face of the rim and face of the spokes and in between the spokes and the barrel is a painted finish.
The different finishes on an alloy rim therefore require different repair techniques specific to that finish. Onsite Alloy Repairs specialises in repairing gutter rash, ‘curbing’, scrapes, scratches and damaged paint work to painted, machine face and shadow chrome rims. As advised previously, ‘chrome plated’ rims cannot be ‘spot repaired’ and will need to be taken into a shop to be re-chromed. We have wheel technicians who are highly skilled in colour matching, blending and repairing alloy rims. Having your rim repaired is a much cheaper and more convenient option then having to buy a brand new one.
