Alloy Wheel Welding

Our Process

Using only high grade ali welding rods our skilled Zurich assured TIG welder is able to repair the vast majority of cracks.

We always start with an assessment of the wheel to make sure we are certain of the the damage. Sometimes cracks are accompanied by a buckle and this will be fixed first. Then the area around the crack will be ground down and cleaned up and the repair can be done.

We take great pride in our work and will always leave the repair as neat as possible (no unsightly weld bulbs) and we are aware that in many cases the wheels will be getting refurbished and we want the refurbers to be able to go straight to work on repainting.

What we can fix

TRS UK is able to repair the vast majority of cracked wheels from the everyday hair line crack to wheels that have holes in the barrel.

We even rebuild wheels where they may have hit a kerb and broken a chuck off of the lip. You must always keep in mind that repaired damage to the face of the wheel is going to show and it will be best to get it refurbished once welding is completed.

Typical Damage

Small hair line cracks on the back of the wheel are amongst the most common. Often caused by pothole impacts and usually found on wheels driven with run flat tyres.

The picture to the left shows an example of this type of crack.

Moderate Damage

This type of damage includes cracks that have opened up (no longer hair line) or cracks that are longer than approx 3 inches. Also cracks that follow the barrel of the wheel round fall into this category. All of these types of damage take more time than the typical cracks.

The picture to the left shows an example of this type of crack.

Severe Damage

This type of damage is usually quoted on inspection although we will always try and give a ball park figure to help a customer decide if it is worth doing.

An example is a hole, as in the picture to the left, something like this may cost £120 – £150.

The prices above are for guidance only. We try to keep pricing as straight forward as possible and in most cases the guide price is correct, however there are times that on inspection the damage maybe more extensive than expected.
