    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.
