Alloy Wheel Straightening
Alloy wheels can get damaged in a variety of ways, they can get hit by a curb, bent on a pothole. If you are experiencing vibrations or shaking from your steering wheel or excessive tyre wear or tyres, which do not seem to be lasting very long after purchase then it is likely that your alloy wheel is suffering from some damage.
First Aid Wheels can repair bent alloy wheels in a few hours or next day service at the worst (for badly buckled alloys).
95% of wheels are straightened while a customer waits.
How do I tell if my alloy wheel is buckled?
You may find that you suddenly feel vibrations whilst driving. Uneven tyre wear may also be a sign that your wheel(s) have a buckle. Your tyre fitter may advise that you need a wheel straightened before they can put on new tyres
Do I need to buy a replacement wheel if my alloy is buckled?
No, you can simply allow us to straighten your wheel at a fraction of the cost of a new wheel.
Will the strength of the wheel be affected by repair?
No, not noticeably, however, our roads are particularly poor and further damage can occur because of this, so try and avoid driving over potholes is possible if not, drive over them slowly and with caution.
