Different Types of Alloy Wheel Damage

by Herts Wheels Specialists in Alloy Wheel Refurbishment
Modern cars & vehicles are fitted with alloy wheels. Due to lack of maintenance, these wheels can be damaged badly. Let's discuss some major types of alloy wheel damage.

Cracked wheels
Roadside potholes are mainly responsible for the cracked wheels. Cracks can either be major or minor. Apart from that, stones, objects & metal pieces also cause cracked wheels. Cracks can badly damage the internal structure of alloy wheels. Alloy wheel welding is used to repair both major and minor cracks.

Deep damage
Sometimes alloy wheel experts come across some car alloy wheels having deep scratches or gouges on the wheel surface. Deep damage should be fixed as early as possible. Otherwise, you never get a better driving experience.
Different Types of Alloy Wheel Damage
Backside bend
Backside bend is the most common problem of alloy wheels. This is mainly caused by a road hazard, curb & potholes. Backside bends are mainly identified in the inner & outer tip, face & spokes. This type of problem is mainly fixed by the alloy wheel refurbishment process.

Curb damage
Curb damage is mainly caused by road debris, curb rash, etc. The damage is mainly found on the face, spokes & lips of the alloy wheels. Curb damage can be fixed by the alloy wheel painting process. OEM paint can easily bring back the original shape & design of the alloy wheels.
Alloy wheel welding & alloy wheel straightening
Corrosion
Corrosion is another alloy wheel damage issue caused by brake dust, tire sealants & chemicals. These materials are mainly identified on the road side. Just like curb damage, corrosion can be removed by the alloy wheel painting process. This process is economical & highly recommended by the experts in Hertfordshire.

Gouges
Gouges are generally caused by direct contact with debris & road hazard materials. This kind of damage can be severe if it is not properly diagnosed. Gouges can be repaired by alloy wheel welding, CNC machining, etc. Experts suggest driving smoothly on the road to avoid this kind of damage.
