Buckle up – Why there’s no excuse for not repairing your alloys

Sadly, thanks to our pothole-strewn roads, there’s every chance you’ll damage your alloys at some point in their life. It’s not necessarily a sign of bad driving – sometimes there’s simply no time to slow down before the pothole is upon you.IMG_0133-2

When a buckle happens you only have one of two choices: repair or replace. Driving on buckled alloys isn’t an option: you will not only ruin your tyres but the vibrations from the buckle can damage your suspension or even make you fail your MOT. Replacing your alloys can be terribly expensive, so why not use our simple straightening technique to have them as good as new for a fraction of the cost?

The process uses specialist hydraulic equipment to straighten the alloys and revert the wheel back to a true circle. This ensures that there is no air loss, no vibration and no chance of any new tyres being shredded! As with all our services, the process is finished by a full examination of the wheels and rebalancing the tyres.

If you’re concerned that you may have a buckle, remember that it’s not always possible to see the damage by inspecting your wheels. Other warning signs are:

  • Unusual vibration in the car
  • Steering wheel shake
  • Premature or uneven tyre wear
  • Unusual changes to your car suspension
