Welding / Cracked Wheels
A1 Alloys can repair almost any damage from minor kerbing to severe pothole impacts such as cracked wheels using specialist equipment and techniques.
Cracked alloy wheels are a common problem on larger rims, cracks or hair line fractures on alloys is even more common possibly due to run flat tyres, often the cracks are discovered when a slow puncture is discovered on your MOT. Cracks can be repaired and still keep the wheels strength and integrity.
Our specialist welders can weld the alloy wheel for cracks, stress fractures or kerb damage or any other defects such as large chunks missing.
We grind out both sides of the crack or hairline fracture. This is to get rid of any contamination so the weld will be perfect.
We then weld both sides of the alloy wheel, some weld repairs often do one side which makes the wheel weak, once the weld is done on both sides, it is as strong as a new wheel.
Lastly we grind the weld down so it doesnt damage the inside of the tyre.
