Frequently Asked Questions about Diamond Cut Wheel Repairs
Firstly, what is a diamond cut wheel?
Most factory standard and also after-market wheels are powder coated and clear-coated wheels. So bare metal, then paint, then lacquer to seal it and make it shiny. A diamond cut wheel is an alloy wheel that is then put on a lathe and machine finished; removing part of the whole face of the alloy and gauging very fine lines in the metal to make it look very shiny and providing a slight rainbow effect. Then lacquer is applied to prevent corrosion.
Can my diamond cut wheels be repaired?
Most of the time, yes. There are some circumstances where the wheels cannot be repaired or it would be inadvisable to do so, for example if the wheels have been repaired before and the technician believes the structural integrity of the wheel would be compromised with further machining. Every wheel is assessed before the work commences. Ask one of our wheel technicians here for more details.
How long does the finish last on a diamond cut wheel?
This depends. It’s very unusual for the finish to last as long as a simpler painted wheel. This is due to the fact that the lacquer does not adhere as well to bare alloy as it does to a powder painted one. The result of this is that any chips you get from kerb damage or road chips that make a hole in the lacquer will very quickly allow water to seep in and the wheels end up with milky looking patches.
