Alloy Wheel Repairs

 
Common forms of Damage.
 
The most common form of damage to Mag wheels is done by scraping, hitting or running up kerbs, Potholes in the road, Hitting foreign objects on the road and Tyres blowing out.
 
 
Cast Mag Wheels.
 
If your Mag wheels are Cast Aluminium then they can be repaired.  95% of Cast Wheels do not go through a true heat treatment process, they are simply cooled at a certain temperature after they have been poured at the foundry stage. This is why all Cast wheels can be repaired. Just the process in welding,staightening and machining is alot different. BRUGAR Engineering can usually identify what your wheels are by visual inspection of stamp marks.
 
** Cast wheels are generally much heavier in weight and also feel thicker than other wheels
 
 
Spun Mag wheels.
 
Spun Mag wheels can be repaired if dented or bent, but if cracked they sometimes end up costing much more than Cast Mags.
 
 
Chrome Mags
 
Chrome Mag wheels can be repaired but the chrome cannot be restored to the wheel if it is chipped or flaking.
