Straightening Service

When a wheel hits a pothole or a kerb it can bend or buckle the wheel and result in flat spots. Out of shape wheels can increase tyre wear, lead to loss of tyre pressure, vibration and can even damage the suspension.

We have invested in a specialist straightening machine that uses a hydraulic press to ease out the damage. When the damaged area is located this is heated with the surrounding area to reduce the risk of the wheel cracking under pressure. A hydraulic ram is used to push out the damaged section until is runs true.

We will inspect your wheel to ensure we give you a realistic view on the results you can expect. If the buckle is severe it may not be safe to straighten and we will advise you of this.  In some cases, we will only know this once the wheel is put on our professional wheel straightening machine.
