Alloy Wheel Repair Safety Through Testing

Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists is committed to making consumer safety our first priority. Wheels that were bent and cosmetically repaired using Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists’ standard procedures were tested to the specifications for radial and cornering fatigue, side impact, paint adhesion and marking standards. These standards use the same performance criteria required for the OEMs. All repaired wheels tested met or exceeded the performance criteria.

Our alloy wheel repair processes have been independently tested and certified. Shown above is the video demonstrating this.
