Alloy Wheel Repair

Wheel Repair in Forney, TX

Between pothole damage and scrapes or scratches, it's easy to find yourself considering new wheels.

At the same time, wheels can be one of the more expensive purchases on a car. If you like your alloy wheels, there's a much more affordable option available than replacement: wheel repair.

At Forney Tire & Service, we specialize in alloy wheel repair. Whether you need a wheel refinishing service or bent rim repair, our technicians are on hand to restore your wheels to like-new appearance and keep them rolling.

Wheel Repair vs Replacement

On average, wheel repair is around 40% cheaper than buying new wheels. But is it always the best choice? If you were already thinking about changing wheels, or your wheels are severely damaged, buying new wheels might be a better option.

Here's how alloy wheel repair compares to wheel replacement in different scenarios:

  • Cosmetic Damage: Scratches and corrosion look bad but don't mean it's time for replacement. Many motorists choose our alloy wheel repair service to fix blemishes and restore the appearance of their wheels. There's little reason to buy new wheels in this instance, unless you're ready for a new look. Otherwise, wheel repair is an affordable alternative.
  • Bent Rim Repair: A small bend in your rim from a pothole is serviceable. Alloy rim straightening should always be done by an experienced technician. Our technicians have years of combined experience in wheel repair and use specialized equipment to return your wheel to a round shape.
  • Severe Structural Damage: Severe damage impacts wheel integrity and cannot be safely repaired. We inspect all alloy wheels to determine their eligibility for structural repair. In the event your wheel is unsafe to service, we offer a wide selection of replacement wheels.

If you aren't sure about the state of your factory or custom alloy wheel, call (972) 552-1168 to talk with a knowledgeable member of our staff. Describe the damage or show us in shop.

Wheel Guide

Before you shop for new wheels, use our wheel buying guide below, and consider the advantages and disadvantages of different wheel materials in order to find the best wheel to suit your needs. If you have any questions during your research, simply contact us online.

  • Alloy Wheels are light wheels with improved performance characteristics. These light wheels increase cornering and steering precision, and decrease road feedback for better braking response.
  • Steel Wheels are heavier wheels that provide vehicles with a lower center of gravity. Steel wheels are perfect for harsh road conditions in the snow or off-road over rugged terrain, but lack other performance capabilities because of the added weight.
  • Chrome is an aesthetically pleasing finish applied to both alloy and steel wheels. Chrome wheels are sought by drivers concerned with cosmetic appearance. While chrome wheels are known for their metallic mirrored shine, durability, and strength, they require regular attention and cleaning to maintain their visual appeal.

Wheels & Rims: The Manufacturing Process

  • Cast Wheels: Aluminum wheels are manufactured through a process of pouring molten aluminum into a mold. The shape of the wheel is formed through a process of gravity or pressure casting.
  • Machined Wheels: The machining process combines casting, heating, spinning, and precise pressurization to fill a mold with molten aluminum and shape the wheel.
  • Forged Wheels: The forging process takes a solid piece of aluminum and molds the wheel through high heat and extreme pressure. The result is a light, dense, and strong wheel.

The right set of wheels depends on vehicle characteristics and desired ride quality. When choosing wheels for your car, truck, or SUV, consider the following:

  • Size: Various wheel sizes and weights hold different performance characteristics. If you plan on upgrading your current wheel size, be sure to consider the maximum wheel size allowance on your vehicle.
  • Weight: Wheel weight impacts vehicle performance. Heavier wheels increase braking distance and reduce handling, while lighter wheels will improve maneuverability and braking performance.
  • Terrain: Where do you drive most often? Wheels should be selected based on their primary function.

Every customer’s criteria for buying wheels is different, so we urge you to contact us with your questions or concerns. Our service staff is comprised of wheel and rim experts who remain on the cutting edge of wheel style, configuration, and performance.
