What is Wheel Repair?
When you say wheel, do you mean the tire?
Why does it cost so much to fix a wheel?
Yes and no,
The "wheel" consists of two parts - Tire and Rim. When we say wheel repair we mean both rim and tire issues.
The common wheel on a vehicle in 2014 is about $700. This is due to the fact that wheels are no longer made of steel with a hubcap for aesthetics. The majority of vehicles on the road today have wheels made of aircraft grade aluminum with a painted, polished, or machined finish. We do our best at Complete Wheel Repair to provide quality work and a cost effective solution in lieu of purchasing a new rim.
Why am I constantly losing air in one of my wheels?
While tire air pressure fluctuates to a degree in relation to outside temperature, you shouldn't be losing air regularly.
If you are constantly losing air or have a slow leak here's some potential causes:
- hole in tire
- insufficient seal between bead of tire and rim
- insufficient seal between valve stem and rim
- bent rim due to large potholes
- cracked rim due to large potholes
