Process


Arrival

  • Wheels are taken off the vehicle* and tyres removed from the wheel using a specialist machine. (*subject to chosen Admission Option)

Preparation

  • Wheels are dipped to remove any previous paint and lacquers.
  • Wheels are lightly blasted to remove any corrosion and to provide a good base for paint adhesion.
  • Wheels are inspected and prepared, removing any kerb damage. Any major damage will require welding (an additional charge would apply, this would be discussed prior to welding occurring).

Paint Application

  • Wheels are placed in our oven, heated to 245°C and a powder primer coat, powder top coat and lacquer finish are applied, with heating and cooling between coats.

Quality Check

  • Wheels are then subject to a quality check on the paint finish.

Refit

  • Tyres are then refitted to the wheel and balanced before fitting back on to the vehicle, along with any centre caps and new valves.
  • The vehicle is then ready for collection.
