Common Causes of Wheel Damage and How to Avoid Them

alloy wheel repair

Wheels are some of the most battered parts of a vehicle and as such, they are also among the parts that are most prone to damage. These damages can range from a slight scratch that a good wheel scratch repair company can fix very quickly to much more sizeable damages that may warrant a complete replacement of your alloy rim. Here are three of the most common causes of wheel damage that you can avoid.

Driving over Potholes and Rough Roads

Driving on roads that have uneven surfaces and riddled with potholes can easily result in damaged tires. Going over sharp rocks or suddenly hitting deep potholes can puncture the tire. Depending on the severity of the damage, you might still be able to drive home on the damaged tire or you might need to replace it right away.

Using Very Low Tires

One of the functions of tires is to absorb some of the impacts while driving, especially on roads that are not perfectly smooth. If the tires you have are very low, a lot of the impact goes straight to the inner wheel and the rim, which can eventually become misshapen and unsuitable for driving.

Scraping the Curb While Parking

Miscalculations when parking can cause you to drive your alloy rims right against the concrete of the curb. These accidents usually cause light scratches that can easily be repaired by alloy wheel repair specialists.
