WHY YOU NEED RIM REPAIR
Curb Damage Repair
Rimguard’s mobile alloy wheel repair is your solution for unsightly curb damage, scratches, and oxidation. Alloy wheels come in many sizes and color variations. Wheel sizes range from 14” to 26” in diameter. The finish of your wheel could be: machined, polished, hyper silver, low or high flake metallic, or even custom painted to match your vehicle. Damage to your wheels can come from: curb damage, wheel weight scratches, low acid spray, lug nut impact wrench, auto accident, and road salt, which leads to oxidation
Brake Dust Corrosion
Disc brake dust is a big problem for millions of car owners. The beginning stages of brake dust corrosion can actually burn small marks into alloy wheels if not removed on a weekly basis. Overtime a combination of moisture, grime, and brake dust can lead to severe pitting of alloy wheels. Once your wheels get to the point of severe pitting, the only option is to have your damaged alloy wheels professionally refinished. Rimguard prides itself in having the technology and experience in assisting customers with issues of brake dust corrosion on alloy wheels.
Alloy wheel oxidation is caused by a chemical reaction between air and water that causes the alloy wheel to pit. The problem with oxidation starts when the factory clear coat is compromised, usually due to curb damage or outer wheel weights. If left unresolved your wheel will develop noticeable oxidation in a matter of weeks. At the point of compromise, your wheel will develop a gray and white spider look, especially on machined finish alloy wheels.
We can restore your damaged polished wheels to a like new appearance for a fraction of the cost for a new polished wheel. There are several processes for repairing polished wheels the correct way. We start by stripping the factory clear coat off your rim, repairing any curb rash, polishing the rim, cleaning the rim, and applying a protective powder coat clear coat finish for a like new factory finish.
