Rim Repair and the Welding Process
Due to metal fatigue or as a result of dropping in a potholes; cracks are a common problem with alloy wheels. Cracks can lead to slow air leaks and have the potential to widen and cause dangerous blow outs. Large cracks prevent tires from holding air and prevent you from getting on the road altogether. Stressed over time, a crack can spread to the point that a wheel is no longer safe. Wheels with 2 or more cracks should definitely be replaced.
Does Welding Work?
Welding cracks in a rim is a straight-forward and temporary solution to these problems. Unlike sealing compounds (which are sometimes used as “quick fix” for small cracks), welded areas are stronger than before with our specialized aluminum welding technique which prevent cracks from getting worse over time.
