Alloy Wheel Repair
Alloy Wheel Damage
Alloy wheel damage happens to even the best drivers out there – sometimes it just cant be avoided, sheer bad luck. But this type of damage can really affect the look of your car and it can also result in hefty penalties when lease vehicles are concerned.
You can damage your alloys in a variety of ways but the most common causes we have found are swerving to avoid traffic or when parking. On both occasions it is usually the kerb who is the culprit.
What Revive! can and can’t do
There is a limit to what Revive! can and can’t do with alloy wheel repairs. Diamond cut alloys and special effects are all a part of the usual Revive! service however repairs can only be achieved on cosmetic damage (light to medium damage), not structural.
Alloy wheel repairs cover:
- Paint repairs to damaged alloy wheels
- Minor defects on alloy wheel spokes and rims
- Cosmetic repairs to alloy wheels (light to medium damage)
Alloy wheel repairs will not cover:
- Structural damage to alloy wheels
- Damage to alloys that has buckled or distorted the wheel
- Severe kerbing
If you have any of the above which are not quite within Revive!’s repair scope, we would then advise you to contact a local bodyshop or alloy specialist.

The damaged area is prepared, sanded down and a layer of special purpose primer is added. The area is then painted, lacquered and left to dry with the aid of Revive!’s mobile equipment.

Revive! believe in fairness when pricing is concerned. Costs are usually fixed and per wheel, however prices may vary depending upon where you live in the country.
