5 Frequently Asked Questions from a Car Owner To The Professionalsby Herts Wheels Specialists in Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
Almost all the professional alloy wheel repairers and furbishers are posed to some common types of frequently asked questions. It is because the customers are curious to find out more about their service and how will the wheel function after repair.
Let us look into the five such frequently asked questions by the customers and how do the professionals answer them.
i. How long does it take for refurbishment or repair?
Based on the wheels' conditions, we start with refurbishment or repairs. It normally requires three days to refurbish the powder-coated wheels. For the diamond cut wheels, we take up to five working days, when a deposit is required. Often we provide spare wheels and tyres in order to fit your car. On the other hand, for structural repairs, like welding or straightening, we straighten 95% wheels on the first day. We take another day when the wheels are badly cracked or buckled.
ii. What does Diamond Cut mean?
Diamond-Cut is an alloy wheel designed so it can be cut on a lathe. A little piece of the wheel's painted face is machined off so the shining alloy finish is left behind. Then the wheel is lacquered over so it does not corrode. The wheel is a diamond cut when it resembles a CD playing area. The fine lines can be seen, which the cutting machine creates to make a shiny appearance.
iii. Will the diamond-cut finish be long-lasting?
Diamond cut wheels will last but not similar to hard-wearing powder coated wheels. If the lacquer damages then, water will find its way in between the alloy and the lacquer. The cobweb-like patches will start appearing and the polished cut finish will develop a milky appearance.
iv. Will my vehicle’s value increase after refurbishment?
Wheels are more valuable as the aesthetic feature for most of the cars. So, refurbishing in fact raises the value. When you are selling a BMW, Audi, Ford, Mercedes, Peugeot, and Renault, then the aesthetics raise the value. But when your car comprises of aftermarket wheels that do not suit the car, then the refurbishment will not raise the value.
v. Do you take off the tyres?
Never do we take off the tyres. When we remove the wheel from your car, then the tyre is deflated. On removing the air from the tyre, we use a pneumatic machine to push the tyre edge down out of the rim’s way. The tyre is reflated as the wheel is refurbished. The tyre remains in its same position as it was before. Thus, the wheels do not need re-balancing.
It is normal for the car owners to have curiosity about their car wheels, especially when they are leaving the wheels at the repair station. But not to worry, the professionals have all the apt answers for your questions and will provide exact answers to calm your curiosity.
