What You Need to Know About Curbing

In most cases, curb rashes are not severe and doesn’t affect the structural integrity of your wheel. More serious cases where wheels are buckled or bent are rare but almost always fixable. Our team will inspect the damage and advise you on the best, safest, and most cost-effective options for you.

  • Serious structural damage to mags and rims may result in you having to replace the mag. While in most cases we can repair your rims, a wheel that has taken a significant hit with compromised structural integrity is not safe, and it is best to replace it. We pride ourselves on being open and honest regarding the extent of the damage.
  • We repair damage to your wheels by firstly removing all dirt. We then straighten and weld any damage to the wheel. It is then painted if necessary to match the colour. After painting, the face of the wheel is scanned using Laser Scanning Technology and then machined in our dedicated Computerised Lathe.  After machining, the wheel is then painted again with a protective Clear Coat.
  • Some Wheels are completely stripped of paint but this depends on the nature of the work.
  • While DIY repair kits can be used on insignificant cosmetic repairs, it seldom matches the finishing of the original wheel. Our laser technology is employed in both the repair and the refinishing of the wheel to have it as close as possible to perfect.
