Refurbishing your wheels is a great way to give them a new lease of life and make them look as good as new. It requires proper preparation, however, to ensure that the refurbishment process goes smoothly. In this article, we will discuss some of the steps you need to take in order to prepare your wheels for refurbishment. From cleaning and sanding the surface to applying primer and paint, we will cover all the essential steps you need to take in order to get your wheels looking their best.
What Are the Different Methods of Alloy Wheel Refurbishment?
Alloy wheel refurbishment is a process of restoring alloy wheels to their original condition or improving them aesthetically. This process involves removing the old paint and corrosion, repairing any damaged areas, and then applying a new layer of primer, paint, and lacquer. There are several different methods of alloy wheel refurbishment that can be used depending on the desired outcome. These methods include powder coating, wet painting, diamond cutting, and electroplating. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages so it is important to understand the pros and cons before deciding which one to use.
Alloy Wheel Repairs done by RimTech Designs professionals. When a professional refurbishes your alloy wheels, the tyres will be completely removed from the wheels. The wheel will be completely stripped of the existing finish and this must be done prior to any other work starting. This ensures the ultimate adhesion of the new finish of your damaged alloy wheels. This also ensures ALL the damages are repaired. A chemical solution approved for stripping the alloy wheels is normally used, and don’t worry, there is no damage to the wheels.
At the end of the stripping process, the wheel is sandblasted to remove particles that might remain on the finish.
This will also remove corrosion if there is any present on the wheel.
This is very beneficial for preparing the wheel for the alloy wheel repairs.

The damages on your wheels, such as any scuffs and scrapes, will be thoroughly inspected and marked for repair. If there is only a very light scratch on the wheels, rubbing them down may be sufficient. Deeper gashes in the wheels will need to be filled then sanded to a smooth finish. This is a process that is quite similar to body work repair performed on vehicles.

Alloy Wheel Repairs – The Painting Process
After the complete wheel has been smoothed in preparation for the alloy wheel Repair, a base coat is typically applied. This is normally a silver metallic paint. This is a delicate process and an even coat should be applied taking care that there are no runs or uneven areas.
The person painting will work their way around the wheel clockwise or anticlockwise way. When watching a professional do this process, you may note that they start at a set position (12 or 6 O’clock) and paint from the centre of the alloy wheel to the rim. Carrying on using this method they will apply paint until they are back to the starting point.
The whole alloy wheel refurbishment process is done quickly so that when the person applying the paint gets back to the starting point, the initial paint is still wet. This is very important for blending the work together so that the ending point is the same shade as the beginning point.
Alloy Wheel Refurbs– Why use a professional?
In addition to needing to paint quite quickly, the process is also painstaking and skilled. The wheels are not simple round, flat surfaces. They are three dimensional objects and this often can create a problem for someone less experienced when it comes to ensuring and even covering of the entire alloy wheel. One of the usual problems in alloy wheel refurbishments is the paint running because it was applied unevenly in varying spots.
As you can appreciate, this will require a certain high skill level in order to ensure the wheels will end up having a smooth finish and having no drips or runs. Quite often, painters will use high powered infra-red lamps to help dry the base coat quickly. Once all the paint has been applied and you are happy with the results, a clear coat of lacquer is put on the wheel to help keep the paint looking great. This is the final step in alloy wheel repairs.
Refurbishing your wheels can include the use of one or several colours. Cream, gold, satin black, metallic black, anthracite and metallic anthracite are just a few of the many colours from which you can choose. Of course, as mentioned the standard colours are usually the lowest priced (Silver, Black, White, Blues, Reds etc). Rather than the price of buying new wheels, alloy wheel refurbs can be a good option answer to the improved appearance of your vehicle.
