They are a modern evolution of the traditional alloy wheel, providing an aesthetic look that can be hard to beat compared to conventional alloy wheels, created by a machine finish from a custom-built CNC lathe. The high shine finish of the wheels can make any scuff and kerb marks more obvious than standard alloy wheels.

We will remove the damaged wheels from your vehicle and replace them with our universal spare wheels, meaning you will still have full use of your vehicle whilst the repairs are carried out.

Not sure if you have Diamond cut wheels? They are often described as having a sharp high shine or polished metal finish round the edge of the wheel, that resembles the finish of a CD. On close inspection you can see very fine grooves, providing a highly polished finish to the alloy wheel, often creating a striking contrast with the main colour of the rest of the wheel. 

 

Our alloy refurbishment technicians work on both scuffed and kerbed Diamond cut alloy wheels, to a heavily corroded wheels where the lacquer coat has lifted from the alloy wheel. Our repairs are not only convenient, being done at your home or work address, but also cost-effective. They often cost less than a traditional body shop, whilst also ensuring the same high standard finish. Most importantly, you are not left without your vehicle for days whilst waiting for the work to be carried out. Corroded diamond cut wheels are quite common. Once the diamond cut finish has been created on a lathe, a lacquer coat is applied to the bare metal as a polished surface will not achieve a long-lasting finish. Over time, stone chips from general use create areas that allow water in behind the lacquer, causing it to lift from the surface and eventually become dull and cloudy looking. The diamond cutting process involves removing a thin layer of alloy from the wheel using a lather specifically designed for diamond cut wheels.

It is important to know that Diamond cut wheels have a limit on how many times that they can be refurbished. Each time a small amount of the alloy is removed. The number of times will often depend on the design of the wheel. We will provide you with a report on each wheel detailing exactly how much of the wheel was removed and how deep the cut was.

Maintaining your alloy wheels will help the resale value if you’re looking to sell and keep your car looking good for longer. Whatever vehicle you drive, Volkswagen, Audi, Mercedes, BMW, Peugeot or Citroen, Seat, Subaru, Toyota or a Mini, we can repair Diamond cut alloys for all car manufacturers. 

The first step is to assess the damage of the wheel and the appropriateness of repair required. Our highly skilled technicians will be happy to advise you on the best solution. We always advise to upload a picture of your damaged wheel for a quote beforehand.

Before having any work carried out on your wheel, there are some things to consider:

 

  • Have your Diamond cut alloy wheels been repaired or cut before? This is important as there is a limit on how many times your diamond cut wheels can be re-cut.

 

  • What is the current level of damage or corrosion?

 

  • Does the wheel have imprinted wording or logos? This can be lost when the alloy wheel is re-cut.

Alloy wheels are expensive to replace so it pays to look after them.  Have you considered adding a ceramic coat to your alloy wheels refurbishment.?

 

The ultimate way to help prolong the life of your newly refurbished wheels, make cleaning easier  and give them a protection that can last for years is to apply a ceramic coating. The coating we use contains Graphene which means an even greater hardening of the surface takes place. Once cured, a permanent rigid shield forms. As as well as inhibiting the build-up of brake dust, the slick heat resistant barrier repels dirt, oils and grime, shrugging off rainwater and even road salt in winter conditions.  Treated wheels maintain their gloss finish and are easier to clean during a regular wash. One coat lasts up to 2 years. Ask about the discount pricing adding this to the wheel refurbishment.
