PREPARE YOUR ALLOY WHEELS FOR WINTER

It’s that time of year again when the nights start getting longer and the days shorter, when the rain pours down and leaves spill across the roads making it easier to slip and slide, before long the icy mornings will be upon us and the gritters will be out; that’s why the Auto Medics team are here to get your alloy wheels prepared before winter sets in.

Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels High Wycombe

In order to keep the roads safe on those frosty mornings in rush hour, the roads need to be salted to help prevent accidents when these icy conditions hit. The trouble is all that salt is lethal on your alloys causing galvanic corrosion, which presents itself when salt gets into stone chips, cracks, kerb damage etc and proceeds to corrode your alloys at a fast pace.

You can protect your alloy wheels from the effects of winter before the frost sets in. Clean your wheels thoroughly and protect them with an appropriate wheel sealant. Continue to clean your alloys on a regular basis (let’s say weekly) throughout the winter months with a gentle wheel cleaner, ensuring there’s no salt from the roads or brake dust left on your wheels.

For alloy wheels that have kerb damage or stone chips it’s worth considering alloy wheel refurbishment, which is a lot more cost effective than having to pay out for new alloy wheels. The team at Auto Medics are experienced in bringing alloy wheels back from the brink and we even specialise in diamond cut alloys.

Alloy Wheels: The Lowdown

Alloy Wheel Refurbishment High Wycombe

There are many ways alloy wheels can sustain damage, commonly kerb damage is the culprit, but corrosion or discolouration through misuse of chemicals are also issues we, at Auto Medics, are fully experienced in rectifying.

Corrosion occurs when protective layer of your alloy becomes damaged leaving your wheel exposed to the elements. During cold and frosty weather like we are experiencing at present, salt from the roads will work to aid corrosion.

When a diamond cut alloy suffers a stone chip or scratch, corrosion will follow the pattern of the entire wheel corroding your alloys and causing the lacquer to flake off.

While initially damage to your wheel maybe cosmetic, left long enough corrosion can cause the wheel to fail.

What is Diamond Cutting?

Diamond cut alloy wheels are often painted before being put on a specialist lathe, where part or the entire surface is machined producing a shiny finish. Once this process is complete lacquer is applied to prevent corrosion.

If you are looking to get your alloy wheels refurbished it is important to know whether your alloys are diamond cut or not. To identify diamond cut alloy wheels check whether they have a smooth, shiny finish with visible grain lines in the metal where they have been turned on the lathe, the effect is often described as resembling that of a CD.

Maintaining Diamond Cut Wheels

diamond-cut-wheels-high-wycombeEarlier this month we looked at the benefits of diamond cut alloys, here we want to give you some insight into how you can keep diamond cut alloys well maintained.

Diamond Cut Alloys High Wycombe

During the creation of diamond cut alloys they are first painted the required shade and then baked in an oven. When they are dry the wheel is mounted on a specialist lathe and the alloy is machined to achieve the diamond cut pattern, which is then lacquered to protect and complete the look.

The lacquer does not mean that the diamond cut alloy is protected from all types of damage. If you scuff or dent the wheel it may damage the alloy and if the lacquer is damaged  water may get  under the lacquer and stain the metal, which is hard to repair without stripping off the lacquer and skilled specialist help

Diamond Cut Wheel Maintenance High Wycombe

There is a trend amongst car enthusiasts to clean their wheels with spray solutions. If you do please check the spray first as acids in some of these sprays can weaken the lacquer and increase your chance of corrosion. The safest way to extend the life of your diamond cut wheels is to clean them with a pH neutral wheel cleaner. Avoid cleaning with acid or alkaline based wheel cleaners as these can often cause discolouration or corrosion when used excessively.

The dedicated enthusiasts often to choose to avoid drying with a towel or cloth, as threads can get caught on the alloy, and to use a hair dryer to ensure they are dried completely. In our opinion it’s not an essential step. In reality the key is to dry off any cleaning solution thoroughly and not to leave anything that could potentially react with the lacquer on too long.

For the ultimate protection against corrosion and staining you can make use of ceramic sealants, which can last up to two years. Be mindful however that even these won’t fully protect your diamond cut alloys should you incur damage in the form of stone chips or scuff your wheels against a curb or pothole. Anything that allows salt to find its way under the coating, attaching itself to the bare metal, will then lead to corrosion.

It’s important that if using ceramic sealants you have this professionally applied as it may require careful application and machine polishing to get it right. If an issue with the surface is sustained this can be difficult to treat in the future.

At Auto Medics we recommend the home enthusiast uses a good  wheel wax or  polymer sealant because these require less experience and can be removed so that areas that require maintenance can be accessed easily should you not apply it perfectly first time.

Diamond Cut Alloys High Wycombe

diamond-cut-alloys-high-wycombeDiamond Cut Alloys have become increasingly popular, offering a unique look and the perfect finish for your alloy wheels. Here at Auto Medics, High Wycombe, we want to help those keen on improving the performance and appearance of their car to understand how these alloys can benefit their vehicle.

To create a diamond cut alloy a small amount of the alloy is machined off to produce a “diamond cut” finish using a highly accurate (and expensive) diamond tipped lathe.The alloy is then lacquered to prevent corrosion and to further enhance the look. If you look at an alloy closely you can identify most types of diamond cut finish if the appearance of the alloy is very shiny and you can see very fine lines or a rainbow type visual effect produced by the cutting machine.

Benefits of Diamond Cut Alloys

  • Diamond Cut Alloys allow for the ultimate personalisation of your vehicle; our skilled technicians work with you to understand the customisation required before personalising to your specifications.
  • In order for your car to really stand out from the crowd these days it’s important to consider colour. Remember to make the shiny face stand out most wheels have a background colour on the other parts of the wheel.  Diamond cutting can offer variety with shades such as silver or grey to enhance the appearance further.
  • Light weight alloys enhance the process of braking and accelerating; braking becomes easier and acceleration effortless.
  • Manufacturers have designed the wheels to ensure the composition of diamond cut alloys also improves the long term performance of your vehicle, making for a smoother drive throughout the life of the vehicle.

To ensure you get the best possible look and performance it is important you look after them and get any damage repaired before it can deteriorate and compromise either.
