Wheel Doctor's Process
Wheels are re-moved from the vehicle.
Tires are removed from the wheels.
Center caps, clip on and stick on wheel weights, adhesive, tar, valve stems/ or tpms sensors are removed from the wheel.
Wheels are thoroughly cleaned, media blasted or chemical stripped, then re-cleaned and ready to be prepped for cosmetic refinish.
All cosmetic damage to the wheel is repaired.
Wheels are powder coated with primer, powder coated with color of choice. Satin colors are a single stage process and gloss colors receive a clear coat.
Center caps (when applicable) are painted to match the color of the wheels. Most center caps are plastic and cannot sustain the powder coat process due to heat.
Tires are re-mounted and balanced with stick on weights, new valve stems are installed / or tpms sensors re-installed on the wheels.
Wheels are re-installed on the vehicle.
*When wheels are brought to us without tires all the steps are still completed with the exception of the removal and remount and balance of the tires.
Why Call Us Instead of Ordering Replacement or New Wheels
Most often, the core is simply repaired and sold back to someone as a “replacement” wheel. The Wheel Doctor gives you back your own wheels in like new condition at a fraction of the cost and without having to send a core and wait a 3-4 day shipping time. The cost of a new wheel is not cost effective when you can have your own wheel repaired.
