1. Remove Wheels From The Vehicle

When the vehicle arrives, we allocate it a parking spot or loan wheels. The car is left in our secure parking area and is fully insured unless discussed otherwise. Or a set of our loan wheels are fitted on the car and you can stay on the road while we fix up you alloy wheels. Either option your wheels are taken of and sent to the tyre room.

2. Removing Tyres And Prepping Wheels

Tyres are removed by our expert tyre fitters, labelled and stored away. We remove all valves, sensors and weights. The wheels are inspected for buckles and cracks. Tyres are also inspected. If we need to get in touch with the customer, we do so at this stage and further instruction is taken.

2. Stripping The Wheels

The wheels are sent to out chemical room. Here the wheels are dipped in special chemicals where all the previous paintwork and coatings as well as rubber, grime and dirt are all removed leaving a bare aluminium. This stage in vital in ensuring a perfect finish.

3. Sand Blasting

In this stage the wheels are blasted with high speed aluminium oxide. Removing any rust and corrosion and also giving the surface a uniform finish for the next stage.

4. Second Inspection

When the wheel is clean and down to the bare aluminium, we inspect the wheels again for cracks and buckles in case any where missed previously. At this stage we normally never find anything because it was detected before. But we rather be safe than sorry.(may be additional cost involved if we find anything)

5. Straightening And Welding

If any buckles or cracks were found in the two inspections, they get fixed and resolved now, whilst there is no coating on the wheel, and nothing can contaminate the welds. Using our advance techniques, machines and material we ensure the wheel is free from any structural deformations. Deep damages can also be repaired at this stage by filling it with aluminium and then re-shaping to the wheels original shape.

6. Removing Curb Rash

Using machines and hand tools all smaller cosmetic damages are removed from the wheel. After final inspection the wheel us finally ready for a powder coating.

7. Powder Coating

At around degrees Celsius the wheels first go through a process known as degassing. After this a powder base is applied and it is sent back to the ovens to cure. Once cured and colour coat is applied, again back in the ovens to cure.

8. Diamond Cut

The newer more premium wheels are called diamond cut wheels. This is because the wheels are put into a lathe and a diamond tip is ran across the other surface of the wheel face. Taking of microns at a time the face of the wheels adopts a polished finish. Not all wheels go through this process and it can be opted out.

9. Our Signature Lacquer

Using machines and hand tools all smaller cosmetic damages are removed from the wheel. After final inspection the wheel us finally ready for a powder coating.

10. Get The Job Done

At around degrees Celsius the wheels first go through a process known as degassing. After this a powder base is applied and it is sent back to the ovens to cure. Once cured and colour coat is applied, again back in the ovens to cure.
