The pioneers of alloy wheel repairs in Melbourne

As residents of Australia’s most liveable city, Melbournians love nothing more than great restaurants, great coffee, sporting events, culture and the buzz of the city and surrounds. With transport critical to the Melbourne lifestyle, most Melbourne residents who drive a car need to use it every day.

At The Wheelman, we developed mobile repair technology for alloy and machine face wheels, so that even if you need your car daily, our service won’t keep you off the road – true to our motto of quality, convenience, care.

Quotes Made Easy

Not sure how much your wheel repair will cost? Getting a quote from us couldn’t be easier. Simply take a picture of the damage and text it to 0490 040 409. Once we receive it, we will send you a quote, answer any questions you might have and arrange a suitable time to come for the repair.

Saving you time

Are short on time and your wheels fixed straight away? Most repairers will tell you to bring your car into a workshop so they can put your wheels in a lathe, but with us this isn’t always needed. Unless your wheel is badly damaged, our mobile repair technology will have your wheel looking like new, without you bringing your car to us or taking time off from work. We’ll assess the damage to your wheel and recommend the best type of repair to suit you and your alloy wheels.

All wheels repaired

We repair painted and machine-faced wheels on all makes of car, including Mercedes Benz, BMW, Jeep, HSV, Audi, Porsche, Holden, Ford, Nissan, Volkswagen, Landrover, Toyota, Citroen, Rolls Royce, Jaguar, Mini, Skoda and more.

Quality tools and an expert team

In order for a wheel refurbishment to have a good result, you need to use someone with enough expertise, the correct tools and quality paints, – otherwise the attempted wheel refurbishment could look even worse than the original damage.

We understand how important your car is to you, and how it’s essential that your wheels are looking their best. That’s why all our technicians are qualified spray painters, highly trained in the wheel repair business.

Our wheel repair model itself has taken years of development with the right mobile technology and processes. Nowadays, we’re confident enough we’ve got it right that we offer a 12-month warranty on mobile repairs.

Machine-faced mobile wheel repair

The Wheelman Melbourne 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. Not having to put it into a CNC lathe is not only highly convenient, but can save you in excess of $100 per wheel.

    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.

Your service is amazing and we’re both very grateful you were able to get to us so quickly and conveniently.
