Using a combination specialised electro-mechanical machinery and heat we are able to shape most buckled alloy wheels.
We heat up the area around the buckle and then apply pressure to the wheel to get it back into a true shape. Our machine is sensitively calibrated and we can reform the wheel back to within 100th’s of a mm.
We then spin the wheels up on a balancer to make sure that they are ready and road worthy.
We are able to fit and balance tyres if required.
TRS UK is able to repair the vast majority of buckled alloy wheels.
The typical pothole damage is a buckle on the inside / back of the rim. These are fixable 99% of the time. Damge to the front or face of the wheel is trickier as there is usually more involved with the reshaping of the lip, but again these are repairable in most cases.
A buckle through the centre of the wheel, ie twisted, is probably the hardest type of damage to repair. This usually happens in a collision with another vehicle or if the car has lost control and drifted sideways into a kerb. It can be 50/50 as to whether these wheels can be repaired.
A buckle to the inside / back of the rim or a wheel that has gone into an oval shape. These are the most common alloy wheel buckles.
Repair cost from
Please note that the guide price above is for the repair of 1 buckle. Sometimes wheels have multiple dents, in these cases there is an extra charge of £20 per straighten per wheel.
Damage to the front of an alloy wheel is always hard to repair. More time has to be taken when doing these.

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.
