The wheel is an invaluable aspect of all vehicles, from four-door cars to commercial vans and heavy-duty pickup trucks. Not only do wheels help reduce friction by facilitating the ability to smoothly move the car along, but they also provide leverage and optimize performance and agility on the road. Of course, they also house your vehicle’s tires. The most common type of wheel in vehicles today is the steel wheel, but they are also available in alloy, aluminum, forged, chrome, diamond cut, multi-piece, and replica “OEM style.” Unfortunately, wheels are susceptible to damage should you get into an accident or experience an impact on the road. For example, wheels can bend, warp, become scratched or scuffed, and in some cases, completely fall off. If the latter occurs, further damage can occur, such as the axle or the suspension. Brown Collision Center in Charlottesville, Virginia, is your answer when it comes to wheel repair! We offer a myriad of repair services and can even provide replacement if needed.
Our Wheel Repair Services
Some types of wheel damage are easily remedied. If your wheel was scratched or scuffed, for example, it might just need a quick cleaning and sanding. A chip often requires some filler and sanding to blend back into the wheel, which takes no time. We take care of all surface-level wheel damage, further enhancing our polishing, buffing, and powder coating services. We can even perform grinding, which is the process of reshaping and refining the wheel. However, some wheel injuries are more delicate and call for a more involved wheel repair process. If your wheels were severely impaired during an accident, we provide wheel and rim straightening. Straightening is often needed when a wheel gets bent, which then affects the safety and agility of your vehicle, the rate of tire wear, and overall alignment. A professional wheel straightening service requires specialized equipment and technology, which we are in possession of here in our auto body repair shop! Should you require wheel replacement, you bet that we can also provide that. When it comes to wheel repair, no one does it better than us.
