These days many cars come fitted with diamond cut alloys, the latest must have wheel finish. It is easy to identify a diamond cut alloy as they are super shiny and look like the back of a CD. Auto Medics are specialists is diamond cutting alloys; a very skilled process that is produced using a diamond tipped lathe to remove a thin layer of alloy from the wheel, with the wheel then being lacquered to produce the overall effect.
