Diamond Cut Alloy Wheels

Removing thin layers of alloy using state-of-the-art equipment.

Diamond cutting involves removing a thin layer of alloy from the wheel using specialist state-of-the-art equipment. Diamond cutting is a very precise process which requires experienced trained technicians. The precision cut applied to the rims removes only what is required, allowing more cuts compared to other methods.

Corrosion in diamond cut alloy wheels is very common and you may notice you need to pump your tyres up frequently as corroded alloys leak air. Many cars are fitted with diamond cut finished wheels and some people may not know that their car has diamond cut alloy wheels. You can recognise a diamond cut finish by looking for a shiny, bare metal effect on the wheel which resembles a CD disc.

Kerbside damage, scrapes and chippings from the road can leave unwanted markings and damage to your alloys, and Diamond cutting your alloys will make them look like new again.

What we do:

  • Remove wheel/wheels from vehicle
  • Remove tyres
  • Remove valves and weights (these will be replaced with new)
  • Inspect wheel for damage e.g. crack or buckle
  • Vapor blast wheel prior to placing onto CNC Lathe. This process is fundamental for two reasons. Firstly to remove the initial layer of lacquer, and secondly to thoroughly clean the wheel
  • Programme lathe to store profile of the face of the wheel
  • Diamond cut the face of the alloy wheel
  • Place the wheel/wheels in the oven to preheat prior to powder coating with lacquer, then bake in the oven
  • Wheel/wheels are placed on to cooling rack
  • After wheels have cooled and passed quality control tyres are re-fitted, balanced and placed back on the vehicle to the correct torque
