How does car wheel straightening work?
Today most modern car wheels are made of aluminium or magnesium alloy, manufacturers prefer alloys as they are more durable, lighter and aesthetically pleasing. However, they are not as strong as traditional steel wheels which means alloy wheels are prone to deterioration even denting, cracking, and buckling.
Not to fear, 98% of buckled alloy wheels can be repaired giving you more alternatives to buying new alloys, which can be an unnecessary expense.
We use a purpose-built straightening machine to fix buckled rims, the whole process of buckled car wheel repair works like this:
- We remove the tyre and check for cracks and buckles.
- Then we measure the wheel to mark uneven areas.
- The wheel is heated at high temperature to soften the metal, which helps when straightening.
- Hydraulic press is used to fix uneven points.
- We fit the tyre and balance it.
