Rim Repairs

The rim of the car is the outer part of the wheel, which basically holds the tyres together. Rims play an important role in the functionality of the vehicle since they are designed to reduce friction and provide leverage when the motor vehicle is moving. And just like any other component of the car, the rim can also be subjected to wear and tear.

Common Rim Problems

  • Bent Rim
  • Excessive Vibration
  • Unusual Noise
  • Flat tyres
  • Overall Poor Performance

When to Repair and When to Replace a Tyre Rim

Bent rims and other related issues can cause serious problems and can affect the performance of the vehicle. Damaged rims can decrease wheel handling functionalities and may even cause a tyres blowout. Only skilled mechanics can assess the damage of the rims, so it is best to leave the matter to the experts. Here’s a quick guideline on repairing or replacing tyre rims:

  • If the rim is simply bent, then there is a good possibility that it can just be easily repaired. Straightening a bent rim is cheaper than getting a new one. Always check with your mechanic and see if the rims can still be repaired instead of buying a new set.
  • Rims that are bent out of shape with obvious damages or cracks must be replaced to avoid further problems.

It’s not often that we check the overall condition of our car. And for that reason, we no longer notice when our car needs to be serviced. But when you hear a thumping sound when you’re driving on the highway or when the steering wheel constantly vibrate as you try to coast, these problems could definitely indicate a problem with your rims. You should immediately examine them for any unusual wear and try to see if any of the rims are broken, dented or cracked.

Here at Oxley Wheels and Tyres, we can repair most types of rim damages. We only recommend a rim replacement if your rims are beyond the point of repair.
