Should diamond alloy wheels be repaired for a car going back on lease?
To repair or not to repair? Many of you probably questioned before whether to repair or not the diamond cut alloy wheels.
Well the obvious answer to this is yes, and what else would we say as a Diamond Cut Alloy Wheel repair specialist?!
Maybe some people might take the decision not to refurbish wheels and send their lease car back with alloy wheel damage. This can lead to paying around £150 or more per wheel the cost to the leasing company to cover for the repair. After all, your car is vital, so who can afford to have it off the road for 3 to 4 days whilst repairs are done?

If you’re based in the North West of England and you need your wheels refurbished, we can carry out the repairs with our mobile workshop.

To repair properly or risk it with a cheap solution?
If you decide to repair your diamond cut alloy wheels, there are repairers out there who will happily bodge your wheels for you for a bargain price!
Diamond cut alloy wheels are machine turned, cut with diamond cutting tip on a lathe in the factory. We use the same technology to cut out the damage: we take the tyre off the wheel, place the wheel in our state of the art mobile lathe and machine the face down by fractions of millimetres, to take off the damage and reapply lacquer to give the wheel a stunning finish.
We regularly see and correct some horrendous “cheap” fixes, where diamond cut alloys have been sanded and painted. It may be a “pass” for a lease return, but we’re seeing more and more vehicle condition assessors spotting these cheap fixes/bodges, and then charging the customer and getting us to put the car right.
Our honest advice: don’t take the risk! Get a proper lathe repair done and pay a moderate cost once!
