How We Do Things
We begin the process by inspecting the rims. If there are cracks or bends, these are straightened before any other work is done to them. Repairs are completed without using heat to avoid comprising the composition or temper of the alloy wheel rim. Wheel rims with scratches or scrapes are cleaned and sandblasted. If there are missing pieces, we weld them in. The wheel rims are then applied with a high quality primer. Their color is also matched with the other rims. To harden the coating and protect the rim from future damage, they’re subjected to a shortwave light.
Rim repair is a cheaper choice compared to purchasing new rims. The process can also be completed in a fraction of time. Trust VIP Collision to fix your vehicle and get you back on the road fast and at a price you can afford!
