Repairing cracked wheels can be a difficult and extremely important element of an alloy wheel repair. The issues with cracked used wheels range from slowly leaking air for a small crack up to potential blow outs for large cracks. With time and added stress any crack can wide and spread to the point where the car, truck or motorcycle rim is no longer safe to drive on. Proper cracked used rims welding is a time consuming and delicate process. Do not use quick fix solutions such as sealing compounds, the problem is more serious than that. If we consider a steel, aluminum alloy or magnesium rim wheel to be non-repairable if cracks appear near the base of your spoke, near the lug area or on the inner lip of the wheel away from the spokes. However if the crack is small enough it is typically salvageable with a proper rim repair.
Machined finishes commonly referred to as “brushed” are a popular finish for both OEM factory rims and aftermarket wheels. Our machined finish restoration process includes stripping, machining and then a final clear coat for protection on used rims. This process is inexpensive and can be completed usually within a few days for a set of four rims.
Long Island Rim Repair can restore your wheel to it’s original finish. Bent or broken alloy wheels can create vibrations that cause undue stress to vital suspension parts and potentially can cause unsafe driving conditions. Are your Rims scraped, gouged, scratched, stained, or corroded? Our professional refinishing process can restore them to look like new at under half the original cost of a new original equipment alloy wheel.
Would you like to give your alloy wheels a facelift? Now you can! Your local Alloy Wheel Repair Specialist can change the color of your alloy wheels.

Bent or out of round wheels cause vibrations that can damage your vehicle’s steering, suspension system and tires. Uncorrected vibrations will not only destroy your tires, it can cause serious damage to both the steering and suspension systems of your vehicle. Straightening a bent alloy wheel is more complicated than just taking a hammer and pounding out the bend. It is very important to bring your bent alloy wheel to a shop that really knows how to straighten wheels. Long Island Rim has been doing this since 1992. The straightening equipment that we use is a sophisticated hydraulic machine that can bring the rim true within hundredths of an inch.
