What does a Wheel Repair Specialist do?
A wheel repair specialist is someone who can repair, machine, or modify various types of vehicle wheels. The specific services offered by a wheel repair specialist may vary, but generally, the specialist is able to deal with
- and other types of damage to a wheel
Some specialists focus exclusively on aluminum alloy rims, others on any type of rim. In some cases, it is possible that a wheel cannot be attached, so that a wheel specialist may be able to manufacture a new wheel suitable for the remaining wheels.
Much of the work of a wheel repair specialist will be cosmetic work. Alloy wheels can be scuffed, bent, or scuffed by various road debris, as well as impact with curbs or other obstacles.
The wheel repair specialist can come to the site to repair the wheel or ask the customer to go to a wheel repair shop. It usually depends on the extent of the damage to the wheel. In either case, the specialist will assess the damage and make recommendations on the best course of action for the repair.
The types of repairs can vary widely in complexity and cost. Simple nicks or scratches can be corrected quite easily, while deeper nicks or scratches may require a complete finish.
If a complete finish is required, it is likely that the wheel repair specialist will need to remove the wheel from the vehicle in order to remove the tire and use a variety of tools to remove scratches and scuffs.
The design of the wheel can also dictate the complexity of the job; some wheels have spokes, two-piece construction, or various features that can complicate the finish job. If this is the case, the wheel will have to be removed and the repair time may be extended.
Curved wheels can usually be repaired easily, but they require the wheel to be removed from the vehicle. The wheel repair specialist will heat the wheel to the appropriate temperature and use various tools to perform a series of small bends.
The straightness of the wheel can then be checked and bent again if necessary. This process must be carried out in a controlled environment that can provide a consistently high temperature, which means that bent wheels generally cannot be adequately repaired on site. It is possible that very small curves can be processed in the field, but this is generally not recommended.
