Why Is Wheel Repair and Restoration Part of Detailing?
Wheels meet the road and get damaged. A dent or scrape takes away from the look of the car. But wheels that are routinely maintained give the impression that the vehicle is well cared for. When wheels and rims are damaged, that not only takes away from a finished appearance, but it’s a safety hazard too. When you get wheel restoration at a trusted detailer’s shop, your wheels also get inspected for damage.
For the best overall auto detailing and cleaning, including wheel restoration, call the experts at Waxman of Tristate Car Detailing Center. In addition to cleaning and wheel repair, other services offered to take care of your wheels include:
What Are Powder Coating Rims?
This is a polymer-based powder that’s specifically designed to adhere to wheel rims. It’s applied and baked in an oven. When cured, it creates a smooth protective surface. The advantages of coating your wheel rims include:
- Resistance to scratches and chipping
- Protection against corrosion
- Harder, more durable surface
- Longer lasting than paint
- Environmentally friendly
Painting your rims is a temporary treatment. Paint eventually chips or gets scratched and needs to be removed and replaced over time. Powder is baked on making it much more durable and longer lasting. Hire a Waxman professional with experience in applying powder coating for your wheel rims.
How Does Wheel Polishing Affect My Car’s Appearance?
When someone looks at a car, the wheels may not be the first thing they notice. But wheels that are dirty detract from the aesthetics of the vehicle. And the wheels are always in contact with the road. They naturally get dirty. Steps professionals take to clean and polish your car wheels include:
- Rinsing wheels and rims thoroughly
- Applying cleaner
- Scrubbing the surface to dislodge dirt, stones and other debris
- Applying tire and wheel protectant
They typically use a pressure washer to remove hard-to-reach dirt and grime. The experts also understand the importance of using the right cleaner for your wheels because different wheels, such as those made of aluminum, require a specific type of cleaner. Keeping wheels polished is part of good maintenance and part of an exterior car detailing.
