If you’ve never had an alloy wheel repair or used an on-site repair technician, here is a rundown of why you should, and what it’ll involve.
What are mag wheels?
Car wheels are traditionally made of steel which is a heavy but durable material for use.
Alloy wheels, however, are made of other metals – usually aluminum combined with nickel or magnesium) and are used to provide other qualities to the wheel. Aluminum in particular is used for wheels because it’s lighter in weight and still durable and strong.
The term ‘mag wheels’ is sometimes used interchangeably with alloy wheels and actually refers to wheels made out of magnesium metal alloy. These are particularly popular in automotive racing as they are lightweight and also have a high shine.
What is gutter rash – and why do I have it?
Hear that sound? Everyone, at one time or another, has hit a pothole or misjudged a kerb only to hear a scraping sound from their wheels. That damage around the edge of your mag wheel is gutter rash.
Most of the time it happens when the driver of a car isn’t sure of the dimensions of the vehicle or where their front and rear wheels are. It means that when they have to get close to an edge to park or pull over, they end up too close to the kerb.
Most alloy wheels are painted in some way, and this is never more obvious than when the wheel has experienced some damage. Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be permanent – with the help of a professional repairer, your alloy or mag wheels can be back to their original condition in no time!
