Diamond cutting is a technique that gives a painted wheel and 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.
The process involves cleaning your alloys wheels using a specialist jet machine which removes all dirt, tar, and grit. Once clean, the surface of the wheel is precision cut on a lathe to leave a high cut shiny finish. The wheel is then completed by coating the rim with a scratch proof lacquer.
At this stage the alloys are carefully quality checked by our technicians to ensure it meets our high standards of finish. The tyres are then refitted, inflated to the correct pressure and re balanced.
