There is usually no need to remove the wheel from the car, but during the repair process, experts will cover the tire to protect it.
Can the scratches/wear of alloy wheels be repaired?
As mentioned above, yes, worn alloy wheels can be restored to their original state. The wheels are usually sanded with sandpaper to remove scratches or wear. After this, engineers usually apply primer and color-coded paint to make them glow again. This process usually only takes a few hours.
Can curved alloy wheels be repaired?
Yes, sure. It is worthwhile to fix this problem as soon as possible, because you may put yourself and your vehicle in danger. You may feel a little shaking while driving because your tires are not evenly in contact with the road. You may also find that there is a problem with the tire pressure of the affected wheel.
The maintenance specialist will arrange the wheels for you. Quick classification helps avoid any further problems, such as cracks and buckling due to bending.

the rim. If the storage time is too long, you may have to pay another refurbishment fee. Make sure to use a soft-bristled wheel brush to avoid swirls and scratches. Microfiber towels can also provide a beautiful finish to the wheels.
