Our harsh winters combined with the heat of the summer, causes our roads in the Greater Toronto Area (GTA) to form thousands of potholes all across the city. Some are the size of the entire wheel! It’s almost impossible to avoid all of them, hence bending your wheel. Not fixing your bent rim can increase tire wear, cause alignment and suspension problems down the road.
Using our specialized wheel hydraulic press, we can straighten out wheels that have been bent and damaged by potholes.
Bent wheels can cause uneven tread wear on the tires, warp rotors, and cause other mechanical problems if driven on for long periods of time. As soon as you spot a bent wheel on your vehicle, try to fix it as soon as you can.
The wheel is inspected with precise measuring tools, and the damaged area is pressed back in place back to manufacture's specification.
PVD Chrome is a technology especially designed for the aerospace parts and we are proud to be the only Canadian repair shop to provide such technology for the automotive industry. What makes PVD different than traditional chrome platting, that pits and peel with normal wear and tear with time, PVD Chrome is extremely durable and it exceeds the life of regular chrome platting.
PVD Chrome plating environmentally friendly unlike traditional chrome plating. PVD wheels are approximately 80% lighter in weight compared to the chrome plated wheels, which eventually enhances fuel economy.
