Wheel repairs made easy

Most people will tell you that to get a wheel repaired properly, you have to take it off your car. But if you’re time poor or not keen on the cost of workshop repairs, it’s easy to put off getting it done.

Luckily for you, we’ve spent over 10 years developing and refining mobile wheel repair technology, that does top quality repairs for scratches, gutter rash and stone chips, while the wheel is still on your car.

Who we help

While we work directly with car owners, we also provide on-site services at Adelaide smash repair workshops. We help people who:

• Are a smash repairer offering wheel repairs on-site
• Are about to sell their car and need wheel repair
• Have had a collision or run-in with the curb
• Want wheel repair to keep their car in mint condition

In everything we do, we stay true to our motto of Quality, Convenience, Care.

    Our mobile repair technology

    Our repair equipment is capable of machining, polishing, wheel painting and clear coating all alloys to bring them back to their original ‘showroom’ condition, usually in 90 minutes or less. We can carry out repairs on more complex wheels, and colour match to Original Manufacturing Standards (OMS).

    While our Adelaide service does highly effective wheel and rim repairs on gutter rash, stone chips, peeling paint, scratches and blemishes, we can’t repair buckles or cracks. If you’re unsure on the severity of your wheel damage, text a photo of your wheel to 0490 040 409 and we will advise you on whether or not we can fix it.

    Machine-faced wheel repairs

    The Wheelman Adelaide wheel and rim repair has also developed a mobile repair for machine-faced wheels. Provided as the damage is contained to the outer rim and not too far into the spokes of a machine-faced wheel, we can repair it while it’s still on your car. If you’re want to know whether we can repair your machine-faced wheel, text us a photo on 0490 040 409 so we can check the extent of the damage.

    Stories from our customers

    A West Lakes customer was planning on selling her C200 Mercedes Benz but had gutter rash on three of her wheels.

    While two of the wheels only required minor repair, one was significantly damaged. What’s more, they were Mercedes Benz’s latest machine-faced wheels, and so needed specialised treatment. With our careful approach and attention to detail, we were able to have the wheels looking pristine, with a guaranteed long-lasting result.

    Our customer was able to sell her car, with the $390 repair job helping her get a substantial amount more for it than she otherwise would have.

    “I am so surprised – I didn’t know this could be done. Their wheel and rim repair service is outstanding. Lachie the Technician was punctual, polite and a perfectionist. Thank you The Wheelman Adelaide.”

    Frequently asked questions

    Using specialised equipment on our alloy wheel repair vans, we:

    1. Sand and or machine the damaged areas
    2. Prep the wheel for painting
    3. Paint the wheel then paint over with clear coat

    This brings the wheel back to its original colour and condition.

    For wheels with a machined or polished finish, we repolish it and apply paint if and where necessary and paint over with a clear coat to preserve the polished finish.

    Usually your alloy wheel repair will cost $140 to $200. The exact cost depends on the amount of damage and the type of wheel. You can use the quote form or text a photo to 0490 040 409 for a free quote. Click here for more information.

    It generally takes 60 to 90 minutes to repair and repaint your wheel. You can usually drive your car straight away but we ask not to touch or wash the wheel for 48 hours to allow the paint to become touch dry. If it’s raining you might notice water beading up on your wheel – please leave this to air dry as the wheel will take up to 7 days to fully cure.

    No, we don’t get paint on your car because we don’t use a normal spray gun with a high-volume spray. Instead we use an airbrush to re-paint the damaged area, which has a very focused, low-volume airflow that vaporises within 15mm from the tip of the gun, so that we don’t get overspray on your car.

    Your car can be driven straight away. While the paint will be touch dry within 48hrs, it will take up to 7 days to fully cure to the alloy. We ask that you do not touch or clean the wheel in the first 48 hours and be gentle in any application in the first week.

    If the wheel should get wet, you will notice the water will bead up on the painted areas. It’s best to leave this water beading to dry on its own throughout the first week – particularly in the first 48 hours.

    It is best not to wash your car or wheels for a minimum of 48hours, and even better if you can leave it for 5 to 7 days to allow the paint to cure properly.

    Wheels don’t usually need to be rebalanced. The alloy is so light that the small amount of machining and repainting doesn’t affect the overall balance of the wheel and tyre.

    For most damaged wheels, you won’t be able to see the damaged areas. On some wheels where the damage was particularly deep, you will notice a change in profile of the wheel in that area, but once the wheel has been painted, it will blend into the surrounding areas and be virtually unnoticeable.

    Yes. We use a proprietary painting system to ensure that the paint adheres to the repaired surface for life. The process results in a standard hard coat of paint that, if treated correctly will not scratch, fade, or peel.
