Wheel Repairs Brisbane – Materials & Manufacturing

Gaining a greater understanding of the materials and manufacturing that goes into creating quality alloy wheels is important. They are not just an aesthetic improvement to your car, they are an investment and quality alloy wheels will improve the performance of your car. Wheel Repairs in Brisbane is conducted by Alloy Action and we repair high quality alloy wheels on a daily basis. Keeping the wheels looking good is an important factor, but ensuring you maintain the quality of a financial investment is crucial.

Maintain your alloy wheels, prevent corrosion and flaking and get your wheels repaired by Alloy Action.

The time to stop thinking of wheels as nothing more than some sort of aesthetic improvement is now. Switch to something lighter, wider, or of a different diameter and you just might’ve made one of the biggest improvements you could hope for.With the exception of heavy steel slugs you’ve got no business caring about, most wheels are made out of aluminum or some mixture thereof. Aluminum’s relatively inexpensive and, when compared to steel, exhibits a higher strength-to-weight ratio. In other words, aluminum wheels can be strong and light.

Just how strong and how light they are, though, depends on how they’re made. There are only a handful of ways wheels can be manufactured, the most popular of which are a couple of different types of casting processes, flow-forming, and the most expensive of all, which accounts for the sort of wheels that keep you up at night, forging.

The results of whatever material your wheels are made out of and how exactly they’re manufactured will determine how well and how safely your car will perform. In the world of wheels, light weight and high rigidity wins; skimp on either and you’ve just passed up one of the simplest ways of making your car better.

Flow-Forming

Also known as spun-rim manufacturing, flow-forming starts off like low-pressure casting but finishes with a whole lot of heat and a series of steel rollers that finalize the wheel’s shape. What you end up with is something almost as strong as a wheel that’s been forged but for a little less money.

Forging

In terms of strength and durability, forging can’t be beat. Forged wheels begin life as hunks of billet aluminum that are heated up and compressed using all sorts of expensive machinery until they resemble a wheel. Billet aluminum is about as dense as it gets, which means more material can be removed, resulting in something extremely light but without sacrificing strength. The results can lead to a wheel three times stronger than something cast yet weighing as much as 25% less. The forging process also allows for less material to be used, which means larger brake components that typically wouldn’t clear now do thanks to a potentially lower-profile design.

Finally, there’s roll-forging, which starts with a rough-cast wheel and is pressed into its final shape while rolling. The process allows roll-forged wheels to use thinner materials, which can lead to even less weight.

A Few Easy Tips On How To Care For Your New, Or Newly Repaired – Alloy Wheels

At Alloy Action, we understand that your Alloy wheels are an aesthetic accessory to your prized possession! So we want to give you some free tips and advice on how to take care for your alloy wheels, so you can enjoy them for longer.

Taking care of, and keeping your alloy wheels clean and tidy will not only enhance the look of your car, but more importantly, maintain their value for a future sale. Here are some important tips to keep your alloy wheels in tip top shape!


Wheel Repairs Brisbane

Wheel Repairs Brisbane

  • Your Alloy wheels should be cleaned weekly, depending on how much your vehicle is used.
  • It is important you keep alloy wheels clean of brake dust to prevent damage as the brake dust is corrosive, and too costly to ignore.
  • Wash your wheels with warm soapy water, and never use abrasive cleansers, electric buffers or wire wool pads on your wheels.
  • Only use Non Caustic based alloy wheel cleaning products, and when cleaning, try to use a different sponge other than the one you clean your car body with.
  • You shouldn’t clean your wheels whilst they are still hot from driving, as the water will heat, evaporate, and then leave your wheels with soap streaking.
  • Always dry your wheels. Water spots are unattractive wherever they appear, even on the wheels.
  • Take care when driving through a car-wash! As easy an option they are, they could use acidic washes, and the rough brushes could leave your alloy wheels looking worse off than when you went in.
