Wheel Repairs

With a bent wheel on your vehicle, you may experience vibrations in the steering wheel. Bent wheels will eventually cause excessive wear on your tires, may damage to your wheel bearings and cause your car to develop rattles in the long run. We can straighten or repair cracks on almost any aluminum wheel. Using a combination of hydraulics, pulls, pushes, heat, and a great deal of human skill, we can bring your damaged wheels back to factory specifications. Sometimes wheels lose air because corrosion on the inside of the wheel prevents the wheel from seating properly in the bead. We can take care of those annoying leaks for you. We will not attempt to repair wheels that are damaged to the extent that the structure of the wheel itself has been compromised. If we believe that the wheel is damaged too severely to repair, we will recommend replacement.

Cosmetic Refinishing

Cosmetic damage to a wheel is sometimes described as curb rash. Most scrapes and scratches on the painted finish of a wheel can be repaired. Cosmetic repairs are fast & easy to repair. There are two common finishes on a wheel. One is silver or a variation of silver. The other is a hypersilver finish. We can do both finishes. Repairs to painted wheels frequently result in a like-new appearance. If the wheel color is unique or uncommon, we can color match it.

Chrome finishes are a little harder to repair. There is only a small amount of cosmetic repair that is possible to do before the wheel needs to be stripped and re-chromed. If a wheel has a bend or cracks on the face of a chrome wheel, we recommend repair and re-chrome.


Bare aluminum wheels sometimes need a little help to get back that factory finish. Our buffing machines can restore the finish on your aluminum wheels. Some wheels are clear coated to protect the aluminum. We can strip, polish and re-clear those wheels for you.


Our commitment to our customers is complete satisfaction. If you are not satisfied, we will redo the wheel for free. We guarantee our work against inferior workmanship. We guarantee we can save you money vs buying a new wheel. We do not claim our repairs will restore your wheels to a flawless, better than new condition. No repair will be as good as a new factory finish. Our guarantee does not cover damages to wheels resulting from improper care, incorrect assembly, use of acidic cleaners, accidents or other impacts.

We also do custom finishes
