ALL OUR SERVICES
COLOUR CODING - We can colour code your wheels to your car body colour or pop in and choose from a massive range of colours from our swatches. You could start by viewing our gallery online. We have special effects or can do one off mixes to your requirements and for the diamond cut finishes we have a full range of tints available. We work very closely with the suppliers of our powders and paints and are the 1st to get all the latest stuff out.
NOTE- any special colours need to be booked/ordered in advance.
DIAMOND CUT - Lots of manufactures and aftermarket wheels are now diamond cut. You can tell this by looking at the face of the wheel and this should look like the back of a cd (i.e. the lines and brightness) and will be a different colour to your inserts. We have in house the cnc lathe and fully trained technicians to refinish these wheels, this is added to the powder coating process the rest of your wheel will go through including baking on an anti-corrosive spray to seal off the fresh cut surface before applying the powder lacquer, this is far more durable than wet lacquer which is what a lot of other companies use.
SPLIT RIMS - We will remove all the bolts and break the wheel down to either a 2 or 3 piece split rim and refurbish all the parts individually. We mask all the mateing faces with a heat resistant tape so on the rebuild they will be face to face as they should be.
NOTE- when removing bolts from a corroded wheel we may want extra time so we can heat up the said area and using various lubricants and tools hopefully getting them out without them shearing.
CHEMICAL STRIPPING - All our wheels go through this process to remove the old paint and are then neutralised. If you wish to tackle your own wheels then we can strip back and blast ready for you.
POWDER COATING - This is a nice smooth and tough durable finish that we bake on to all our painted wheels as a base before applying any colour followed by a clear powder lacquer in matte, satin or gloss. We will do our up most to achieve the best result possible but heavily corroded wheels are already pitted so please bare this in mind.
LOCAL COLLECTION/DELIVERY - Here you will find a list of post codes that we cover for collections and delivery. If we are removing wheels and re fitting for you then we need as a must please-
-LOCKING WHEEL TOOL
-FLAT SOLID AREA/DRIVEWAY (A SAFE PLACE)
Your vehicle will be left on axle stands safe and solid and at your own risk BUT if someone drives into it the inevitable will happen!
STRAIGHTENING* - Tyre will be removed and the wheel put on our mini lathe. At this point we mark out the bends and now we put the required amount of heat into the whole barrel. Now we use a series of rollers to ease the bends back out….
NOTE- because of the heat applied this may discolour the area but if your wheel is being refurbed at the same time then this is not an issue, and all included in the price of refurbishment.
TYRE SWAP/WHEEL SWAP* - If booked in advance we have all the latest equipment to remove and fit tyres supplied by us or yourself to nearly all size of wheels 99% of the time without marking the rim. Our balancers are calibrated twice a year with upto date certificates.
NO OBLIGATION QUOTE/ FREE VISUAL TYRE INSPECTION*- Please feel free to pop in, call up or use the quote form attached to get a free no obligation quote.
We also offer a free visual health check to tyres but we can only view the outside walls and the treads NOT the inside of the tyre.
LOCKING TOOL REMOVAL* - At our depot in Great Dunmow we can use the latest in tools to remove your locking tools without damage to the wheel. In some cases if they have been done up to a ridiculous setting then we need to weld a nut on the end to get a good grip on it.
*Pre booked these jobs can be done whilst you wait in our office with a cup of tea or coffee or food and other drinks are also available on the estate.
