Process of Wheel Refurbishing

1. Removing the wheel from the vehicle. Marking the wheel with a number (if there are many wheels for repairing) because this will help you in finding the correct wheel.
2. Removing the balance weights, valves and sensors (if required). Wheel is then inspected for visual damage such as dents, buckles and cracks.
3. The chemical solution is used to remove the old paint and dust. The wheel is placed in it for some hours. Now the wheel is in the form of bare aluminum. For cleaning and corrosion removal, it is sand blasted.
4. Now, it is easy to see the damages and cracks. Wheel is then tested with the help of balancing machine and the repairer will tell you whether the wheel can be repaired or it costs you extra.
5. The small repairing is done only to that area and if the damage is very deep it is filled with aluminium and welded to return it to its original shape. The deep damages require full refurbishment.
6. The wheel is heated and then powder is applied. The wheel is again heated. It is taken out and placed for slight cooling. The color application is then done. The wheel is again heated to harden the coatings and to ensure a full cure.
7. New valves are fitted into the wheel and it is refitted to the wheel.
