Low Acid Spray Corrosion This usually occurs when a person uses a low acid cleaner, and allows it to set on the alloy wheel too long - causing a streaking effect. The cleaner etches into the clear coat of the alloy wheel, leaving a white streaking appearance on polished, painted, or machined finish wheels and black streaking on hyper silver wheels.
Cracked Wheel Repair
Rimguard can weld cracked rims using high quality aluminum TIG welding. Tungsten Inert Gas (TIG) Welding, is an arc welding process that uses a tungsten electrode to produce the weld. The weld area is protected from contamination by an inert gas such as argon. Tig welding is more complex and difficult to master than most other welding techniques. At Rimguard, our crack repair team has been trained by a master certified tig welder specializing in aluminum wheels. We use top quality, Miller welding equipment. Joe and John make up the Rimguard crack repair team, they take great care to insure your wheels are safe for your family to ride on.
