Wheel Crack Repairs Shrewsbury Shropshire

You may be looking for Wheel Crack Repairs Shrewsbury because you've gone over a pot-hole and it's cracked the lip on the inside of your alloy wheel. This is very common, particularly on larger wheels with low profile tyres!

It might be that you've not even spotted the cracked alloy wheel until it's been checked during an MOT inspection & it's failed the MOT!

No matter how or when it was caused, we can offer wheel crack repairs to weld the cracked or split in the alloy, restoring it's strength & making it safe & legal again.

Repairing Cracked Alloy Wheels

A crack or split in an alloy wheel is usually caused by a bump with either something like a kerb or rock, or can be caused by very bad road surface with large dips & pot holes.

The split may be small or large depending on the severity of the collision when the damage was caused, and is more commonly on the inside of the wheel, often difficult to detect when the vehicle is on the ground.

Many owners are not aware they have a crack in an alloy wheel until it comes to changing the tyres, or a close examination during an MOT inspection, when the inside of the wheel rims will be scrutinised.

Due to the alloy wheel split being caused by a collision of some sort, quite often there is also a buckle in the wheel, which will also need to be repaired to make the wheel run true & safe.

Cost To Repair Cracked Or Split Wheels In Shrewsbury

The cost to repair a cracked alloy wheel will depend on many factors.

As the crack is usually caused by impact damage, there may also be a buckle which will also need repairing.

If the split is on the inside of the wheel, after the repair has been done & the crack is welded, as it's in an area which is not seen, it may not need fully refinishing.

On the other hand, if the crack is on the front face, then after the alloy welding is done, the wheel will need to be refurbished or re-painted to make the repait invisible.

Because of all of these potential circumstances, the cost to repair the wheel can vary widely, so it's best to contact us directly & we can assess what's required to carry out the repair, but in 99% of the cases, it will be a far lower cost than that of a genuine replacement wheel.

Alloy Welding Process To Repair Crack In A Wheel

As mentioned above, any repair to diamond turned wheels requires a full refurbishment, the same process is carried out for all repairs as follows;

  • The car is then lifted using our hydraulic jack under the wheels & placed on axle stand(s)
  • The damaged wheel(s) requiring repair is then removed
  • The tyres then get removed from the alloy rim & marked up with rotation direction.
  • They are tested to see if they run true ie have no buckles
  • Buckles are removed & the split is alloy welded
  • The weld area is either primed for corrosion protection or the whole wheel is refurbished (depending on customer requirements)
  • Finally the tyres are fitted, a new valve is also fitted and the wheels then get re-balanced & are ready to be refitted to the vehicle
