    Default Alloy Wheel Repair

    Hi ! Has anyone had their alloy rims re-rolled in Melb with success ?

    I was told the rear pair of mine had severe buckles that require replacement or repair.

    I am thinking to go to Neway Wheel Repairs as my gf's 306 steel rims are done there, but I'm always open for options.

    Any suggestions/comments ??

    Neway are good. Why are the wheels out of shape though?

    Default Panel Bater in Melb ??

    I think because I drive over train crossing everyday to work on Springvale Road at Nunawading and those bumps are pretty nasty.

    To make it worse someone rear ended me from the side and make my rear right wheel out of alignment, so that might be it as well...

    plus a gazillion potholes on Melb...doesn't help

    I think they just sand it back and then re-coat it. Give Brendon a buzz at Don Cornell on 9502 4666 and ask who he recommends. They might send them away on your behalf. Say I suggested you call him...

    Went to Neway Wheels this arvo, won't be any issues to fix.

    As for your gutter damage, nate, just like GTI124 says, they will sand it back and repaint.

    I have the option to get them sanded off and respray the whole rim, but i opt for touch up paint only, since it'll be damaged sooner or later...

    Nate,

    Can you post details of the place that Brendon recommends, as all 5 (yes 5!) of my rims have gutter damage! Not sure what sort of alloy renault uses for these rims, but they are sure as hell very soft and easy to mark. i actually have a few junks missing along with scratches!

    Bob Jane at Tempe will fix your wheels for you - pretty cheap too. They spinn them up on an old balancing machine, remove the scratches and then repaint. Not perfect, but only costs about $40 a rim. Ask for Sash or Rob.

    Also try Ajax near Southland... They did 3 of my mate's Simmons for $150. Other places quotes up to $180 per rim :0

    Superfinish on South Rd, Moorabbin. Got my RSC rear right wheel repaired last year after a bandido ran along the side of my little Clio in a shopping centre car park. Just thinking about the incident has gotten me all hot and bothered
    They sent it away, and initially I was peeved as I wanted a new wheel, but the job was excellent, as was the rest of the panel work.

    Superfinish - 9532 0900

    (BMW wheels? doesnt the article say the paint is used on the wheels of ANY German made car?)

    Now does anyone know about how to get these/similar products here?

    nate,which products you talkin bout?
    Wurth lacquer is what they all seem to rave about, but I know that Einzett make a comparable product.

    You could try an auto paint store, otherwise you will have to source it from overseas,

    For the putty and primer head to a Burson's, or other paint shop - they also should be able to match the paint colour for you (PPG, Dupont)


    Try these links as well

    Sorry Nate, after browsing the site, it seems there aren't any stores in Sydney and only a couple in rural areas, my bad.
