This is probably the worse damaged Alloy wheel that I have ever seen
Last week I was sat in my small office ,just looking out of the window, when I noticed a breakdown truck with a blue car on the back. I never thought more a do about it as we have these broken down cars brought into us all of the time, as most busy auto centres do.
About ten minutes later a member of my staff came in shouting for me to have a look at this wheel..The Damaged Alloy Wheel had come off the car that was brought in on the back of a transporter, a Ford Focus with a sport conversion, up-rated brakes and over size Cheap Alloy Wheels, you know the thing I mean this was a young guys car and a bit sporty.
However the guy had been going at speed and hit a massive pot hole in the road. The impact had caused a massive blow out to both his offside (drivers side) alloy wheel and completely
wrecked the tyres and caused severe damage to the alloy wheels. We can have small damages repaired by a local alloy welding specialist. These are very often small cracks that appear on the rims and start to leak air from the wheel and tyre assembly. This is most common on some BMW models and some times we have known BMW replacing wheels free of charge. These small cracks can be repaired successfully, to the pleasure of many of our customers. It has been a bad time for broken and cracked alloy wheels recently due to the large increase of pot-holes on our roads, and so it is good to be able to give our customers the good news when they do not have to buy a new wheel, but we can have their damaged Refurbished Alloy Wheels repaired.
I had not seen alloy wheel so badly damaged ?
We were all amazed at the massive split in the Damaged Alloy Wheel that came off the front ,i have never seen one so bad, the split was almost all round the circumference of the wheel. I f you look at the picture you can see what I mean. Luckily for the customer we have just become a member of a buying group here in the UK called Point S and one of the suppliers we can deal with is TSW wheels Alloy Wheel and Tyre Packages. We were able to supply four new wheels along with two new General Tyres and the guy went on his way a happy driver.
