If your mags look or feel like this, you need help from Alloy Wheel Repair:

  • Cracks or splits – Even small cracks can quickly cause issues.
  • Bent or warped rims – If it’s not perfectly round, it’s not safe.
  • Vibrations while driving – Vibrations at high speeds indicate balance issues.
  • Scratches or scuff marks – Cosmetic damage is still dangerous to your street cred!
  • Air leaks – Damaged rims can cause tyre damage and require close inspection.
  • Corrosion – White residue or ‘pitting’ means your mags have corroded.
  • Strange noises while driving – Clicking, scraping, or rattling could be a problem with your mags.
  • Dents or dings – These can get gnarly if they interfere with performance.
  • Unusual tyre wear – Inconsistent tyre tread can affect the overall vehicle balance.
  • Poor handling while driving – If something feels off, it could be damage to your wheels
