Wheel and Rim Straightening Service
Alberta has extreme summers and winters all year, and these harsh conditions can cause some roads to break open and form potholes in the road, which can grow to be larger than the entire wheel. Hitting potholes and driving over them can cause vibrations and air pressure loss. Damaged wheels should be fixed as soon as possible to prevent any maintenance issues in the vehicle. Wheels are intended to be straight in order to achieve proper mileage and even wear and tear on tires.
We use a highly sensitive dial gauge that can detect even the tiniest of bends and leaves no space for imperfections.
After locating and inspecting the bend, the affected area is pushed back to original
manufacturer’s specifications using a hydraulic press and then machined on a CNC lathe to ensure trueness in the wheel structure.
