The tools are very precise, so they can remove even the smallest scratches and blemishes.

What are diamond cut alloys?
Diamond cut alloys are alloy wheels that feature a shiny, reflective surface that sparkles and catches the eye. This finish is achieved by removing a thin layer from the wheel's surface using specialist lathing equipment, creating a precise and uniform finish distinct from other alloy wheel types. Diamond cut alloys are more susceptible to damage from road debris and harsh weather conditions, which is why alloy wheel diamond cutting is a popular service for restoring their appearance.

Can my alloys be diamond cut?
Whether or not your alloys can be diamond cut will depend on their size, condition, and the number of times they've been previously cut. Diamond cut alloy wheels can only be recut a limited number of times, as removing too much alloy could weaken the structure, making it unstable. Rolling Rims' team of specialists can assess your alloy wheels and advise whether diamond cutting is an option or an Alloy Wheel Powder Coating refurbishment would suit your requirements.

Can you remove corrosion from diamond cut alloys?
Corrosion is common on diamond cut alloys. It occurs when the lacquer is damaged, allowing water to get between the alloy and the lacquer. This causes a cloudy effect. Unfortunately, you cannot just remove corrosion from a diamond cut alloy. However, it is possible to repair the alloy and return it to its former glory.

Our Diamond Cutting Process

At Rolling Rims, we understand the importance of alloy wheels for any vehicle. That's why we provide a variety of services to keep your wheels in top condition. From basic repairs to custom split rim rebuilds, our team has the expertise to give you the perfect finish.

Step 1 - Remove

If you've bought your vehicle to us, we’ll jack your vehicle up, place it on axle stands and remove your wheels. Once your wheels are inside the workshop, we'll remove your tyres and valves, getting them ready for stripping.

Step 2 - Strip

Now your alloys have had the tyres and valves removed. We can start prepping them for paint. Your alloys are stripped using Rolling Rims unique chemical mixture, which removes all paint and grime, even from hard-to-reach areas.

Step 3 - Prep

Once your alloys are done soaking, they are moved to our steam cleaning bay. This allows us to remove all residue from the alloys ensuring they are ready for the next steps. If your alloys are damaged, we’ll need to sand them down, weld and then media blast. Depending on the damage, we may need to fill some areas to get a level surface before painting.

Step 4 - Paint

Now that your alloys have been prepped & cleaned, we can get them into our powder coating bay. Once inside, we apply your specified colour and put them in the oven to cure.

Step 5 - Cut

Now that the alloys have been painted, we can get them onto our specialist alloy wheel lathe, ready to Diamond cut your alloys. After all the alloys have been diamond cut, we treat and protect them using our specialist products. This involves lacquering each alloy wheel to get them ready for the road ahead.

Step 6 - Assemble

That's it! Your alloys are looking new and are ready to be built up. We'll put new valves in and your tyres back on. If your tyres are low on tread, we stock a wide variety of tyres. This is a great time to consider fitting new tyres if needed. We then balance the wheels and ensure they are within spec and ready to go back on your vehicle. *Note* - *TPMS stems will be reused if suitable. We will not refit tyres with excessive damage.*
