Our process of refinishing is a several step process. The first step is to check the rim for true. Next chemically strip the rim down to bare alloy. We inspect the rim for any damages that may now be visible. Any needed welding is done at this point. The wheel is put through a blasting process. Once the rim is smooth we apply a powder primer, color, and a powder clear.
Our strength is in our straightening. RimPRO has a proprietary process that has allowed us to bring wheels to +/- .010". Our machines are designed to remove the dent or bend without compromising the alloy. Despite our best efforts not all rims can be straightened, rims can crack during the process. We will discuss options at that point with the owner.
Our welding process starts with us visually inspecting the rim to ensure it can be welded. Not all cracks are weldable. Cracks that appear on the face of the rim usually can not be repaired. In these cases, we can work with you to find a refinished OEM rim to match yours. Cracks on the inside barrel of the rim are the most common. A common cause of low air pressure is a cracked rim. Along with repairing the crack we check the rim for true and will straighten it if you would like. We always recommend straightening because what caused the crack likely also bent the rim.
Rimpro buys and sells wheels. Our inventory is constantly changing. These can be used or refinished. We have thousands of wheels in stock and have built up a vast network of suppliers to source wheels that we do not have in stock. If you have a wheel that is not repairable or would like a certain wheel we maybe able to help you locate what you are looking for.
Rimpro will be closing at 12 PM on Wednesday 11/22 and will reopen Monday 11/27 at 8 AM.
We wish everyone a Happy Thanksgiving!
