Alloy wheel welding repair

The majority of modern cars have wheels that are made of an alloy of aluminium or magnesium with other elements. These metal mixtures are often lighter and more durable than pure metals. However, alloys are also more ductile which means they are easily cracked and deformed. If you have backed over a kerb improperly and bent one of your wheels, don’t try to fix it yourself as it will likely lead to a crack which is a potential safety hazard.

Magnesium or aluminium wheel welding is a process that joins metals using fusion. No need to throw out your cracked rim! Alloy wheel welding costs much less than purchasing a new one. We can help you save money and buy yourself two more years of safe driving instead.

The Process:

  1. We check that the tyre is not leaking pressure anyway else on the wheel by using a water bath.
  2. The wheel is then checked for buckles if the wheel is cracked it is common to find a buckle. If the wheel is buckled we can straighten it if you require.
  3. Tyre removed
  4. We then grind the weld out to get rid of any contamination before welding.
  5. We weld on both sides and leave a run on the weld to give the weld more strength.
  6. An angle grinder is then used to make sure the tyre fits and holds pressure.
  7. Tyre fitted and balanced one final air pressure check and the wheel is road worthy again.
