Wheel Reconditioning

Initially, the wheel must be inspected in order to determine if choosing to perform a repair will be safe. From there the process of reconditioning the wheel is dependent on the level of damage and what the original appearance of the wheel was. The reconditioning process itself can include a variety of different elements, such as stripping, painting, machining, welding, straightening, and clear coating. Throughout each stage of the reconditioning process, the wheel is monitored and examined in order to validate that it meets our commitment to excellence. The final condition will either equal or even surpass the original specifications from the manufacturer.

Painted

Machined

Your wheels will be thoroughly cleaned, sanded, re-painted or machined, then clear coated and baked to a hard, like new finish, at a fraction of the cost of buying a new wheel. Call for an appointment or drop your wheel off to be picked up later.
