How does car wheel straightening work?
Most modern car wheels are made of aluminium or magnesium alloy. Manufacturers prefer alloys as they are more plastic and durable. However, they are also softer which means alloy wheels are prone to denting, cracking, and buckling. No worries, though. 90% of buckled wheels can be repaired giving you at least two more years until you absolutely need to buy new ones. We use a purpose-built straightening machine to fix buckled rims. The whole process of buckled car wheel repair looks like this:
- We remove the tyre and check it for cracks and buckles which may occur due to a recent impact with a kerb or a pothole.
- We measure the wheel to mark uneven areas.
- We heat the wheel at high temperature to soften the metal and make sure it doesn’t crack when pushed back into shape.
- We use the hydraulic press to fix uneven points.
- We fit the tyre and balance it.
Buckled car wheel repair can be done in less than 48 hours, so you will be able to use your car again in the shortest time.
