If tyres are present, the tyre is removed from the wheel altogether along with the wheel weights and valve. After tyre removal, your wheels are placed on a wheel balancer to check for any buckles, flat spots, cracks etc
If any welding or straightening is required (charges will apply) we will inform you prior to continuing the job
After examination has been completed, the wheels are then placed in a chemical stripping tank to remove all of the paint (we do NOT use acid).
The wheels are then thoroughly washed to remove all chemical deposits and dirt.
The wheels are then low pressure bead blasted to create the best possible surface condition in preparation for the painting process. Kerb marks are removed via different techniques.
Any structural repairs are undertaken at this stage, such as Cracks and Buckles.
The wheels are placed in our industrial oven and heated to 180-200 degrees to remove any trapped air (known as degassing).
A base coat primer is applied and returned to the oven to cure.
Once primer has cured, a colour is applied, a powder clear lacquer is applied to protect the wheel from salt, brake dust and the general elements.
The wheels are returned to the oven for final curing.
The wheels are carefully inspected, and tyres are refitted along with new valves.
Wheels are finally balanced and put back onto the car.
