Wheel Cosmetic and Curb Damage
Wheels are restored to a like-new finish by our Certified Wheel Technicians. The wheels are repaired, primed, painted, and finished with a superior clear coat. Automotive Excellence will color match the paint to match your specific vehicle. Most painted wheels take 30mins - 1 hour to complete. We can restore scratched, gouged, curb rash damaged wheels back to their original finish.
Machined wheels are very similar to polished wheels. They both have a protective clear coat. The process for restoring this type of wheel involves re-machining the face on a CNC Lathing Machine in order to restore it back to its original appearance.
Most polished wheels today have a protective clear coat on them. Therefore, the clearcoat must be stripped off in order to begin the polishing process. This results in a slightly longer turnaround time to allow for the best results. However, all polished wheels - cloudy, scratched, or oxidized can be restored to a mirror-like finish. Wheels can become damaged from acid spray, oxidation, and even brake dust. This damage can produce unattractive wheels.
Often wheels become corroded and oxidized from exposure to moisture. Road salts, brake dust, and acid cleaners can also compromise the finish of an alloy wheel. Tires may leak due to corrosion on the inner barrel of the wheel. Often chrome rims will pit where the tire meets the rim, causing the tire to not seal properly.
