STRAIGHTENING BUCKLED ALLOY WHEELS
Straightening buckled alloy wheels will enhance the performance of your car, save you from potentially costly suspension repair bills and from having to buy new tyres. The cost of repair starts from as little as £60 plus VAT depending upon the severity and number of the buckles per wheel. We are happy to quote accordingly before any work proceeds.
Buckled alloy wheels can destroy your tyres, which alone is costly enough. The vibrations a buckle generates can also result in serious damage to both the steering and suspension components. A buckled alloy can also result in a failed MOT test.
Uk roads are full of potholes, no wonder so many car wheels sustain buckles. Replacing buckled alloys can be costly, so we offer a simple straightening technique which is a fraction of the cost compared to a new alloy wheel.
Here at Go Tints we provide a specialist straightening service for most wheel types. All work is carried out on location in our Huddersfield repair centre and can be completed within 24 hours. The process is safe and effective. Misshapen wheels can be reverted to a healthy state and following this they can then be successfully re-balanced, which is all part of the services we offer here at Go Tints!
ALLOY WHEEL BUCKLE STRAIGHTENING PROCESS
We use a combination of experience, skill and knowledge along with specialist equipment to straighten your alloy wheels. Specialist hydraulic equipment is used to expertly re-shape your alloys to their original shape. Reverting the wheel back to a ‘circle’ will stop any air loss and/or vibration that the buckle may have been causing.
Straightening any buckled wheel can result in a wheel crack, although the risk is minimal. We would contact you accordingly before proceeding so you are aware of the issue and any associated costs.
HOW TO SPOT AN ALLOY WHEEL BUCKLE
It may not always be possible to see if your wheel has been buckled, but there are certain things to look out for while driving that could indicate a buckle has occurred. If your car starts to vibrate or if the steering wheel shakes it is possible your wheel has sustained a buckle. You should also keep an eye out for premature and uneven tyre wear in addition to unnecessary wear and tear on your car’s suspension. If your alloy is not straightened the vibrations will destroy your tyres and can cause serious damage to both the steering and suspension systems.
