Why You Should Refurbish Your Alloys

alloy wheel refurbishment near prestwoodThere is no doubt that alloy wheels make your car look more aesthetically pleasing. But it’s a painful experience when you hear the scraping of your wheel against a kerb and have to get out and assess the damage. But damaging the appearance of your alloys isn’t the only an issue to be faced; damaged alloys can lead to other consequences too, to name a few:

  • If your alloys aren’t cleaned regularly brake dust can build up and erosion can occur. This can cause cars to lose control or corrosion can cause tyres to deflate.
  • The abundance of potholes in the roads these days can cause your alloys to crack or cause the wheel to bend out of alignment, which undoubtedly requires a new tyre needing to be fitted.
  • Washing your alloy wheels when they are hot can even cause the wheel to crack.

Are your Alloy Wheels Winter Ready?

And so it begins… the frosty mornings spent de-icing cars and de-misting windows before carefully navigating the icy roads near Beaconsfield to avoid slipping and sliding all over the place. It won’t be long before temperatures plummet and the gritters come out in force, which is why you need to ensure your alloy wheels are prepared to prevent corrosion setting in and causing damage.

To keep road users safe it is inevitable they must be gritted in sub-zero weather conditions, the sad truth is the damage salt can do to your pristine alloys. Grit from the roads can cause galvanic corrosion when the salt gets into cracks or chips present in your alloys.

To protect your wheels make sure you clean your wheels thoroughly and protect them with an appropriate sealant. It’s advisable to regularly clean your wheels during winter with a gentle wheel cleaner to ensure you remove brake dust or salt from the roads.

To prevent corrosion in chipped or kerbed alloy wheels, alloy wheel refurbishment can have your wheels looking as good as new and remove the damage that alloys grit and salt to creep in and allow the process of corrosion to develop. In the long term alloy wheel refurbishment  this removes the necessity for you to purchase a new set of alloys due to extensive damage or corrosion. And alloy wheel refurbishment is far more cost effective than having to buy a new set of alloy wheels.
