Diamond cutting is a technique that gives a painted wheel a polished face. This process is done before the lacquer is applied the the wheel. To diamond cut we use a specialised wheel turning lathe and computerised profile capturing. This state of the art method allows us precise control over the finished cut of the wheel and enables us to cut wheels that many other companies will not attempt.
More and more wheels are now diamond cut. It is easy to identify if your wheels are diamond cut, the way to tell is if the faces of the wheels are very shiny- almost like the back of a CD.
You can also see grain lines in the metal- this is where they have been turned on the lathe. They also have painted inserts; these can be any colour, usually black, silver or anthracite.
