Signs Of A Damaged Aluminium Wheel

- Frequent tyre deflation
- Juddering steering wheel and floorboard
- Unusual noise while driving
- Increased effort to turn the steering wheel
- Low handling response
- Increasing fuel consumption, etc.
Causes Of Alloy Wheel Damage
As already mentioned above, alloy wheels are prone to damage due to their material and lightweight. So, here are some of the common reasons that cause damage to aluminium wheels:
Damage can occur when you drive off high kerbs or disregard braking elements in traffic-calmed areas. When the car's entire weight acts on the tyres and rims, the metal can bend and become unbalanced. The imbalance causes the tyres to roll at high speeds - this can lead to life-threatening situations!
Dents caused by bumps must, therefore, be repaired as quickly as possible.
Other high-impact damage can be caused by accidents and driving too fast over potholes or speed breakers.
The wrong tyre pressure and suspension damage can also cause damage.
Other damages that do not necessarily need welding but can be repaired otherwise (please have a look at our Alloy wheel repair section):
Stone chips Small stones, debris, etc., often hit the wheels on uneven roads when driving. Stone chips can hit rims, paintwork or the windshield. Most of the time, this is not self-inflicted: on country roads as well as on motorways, stones can hit the vehicle at any time.
Bird droppings are acidic and can cause severe damage to the paintwork.
