About We Fix Alloys and what we do in alloy wheel repair Newcastle

In this blog we will tell you about We Fix Alloys, alloy wheel repair Newcastle and why you should use us

Why fit alloy wheels?

  • Alloy Wheels are made of material that can easily be damaged but often can also be easily repaired.
  • Car and motor bike manufacturers prefer to use alloy wheels because they look better than the steel versions.
  • This is because aluminium alloy doesn’t rust like steel and it can be made into a greater variety of shapes and finishes.
  • As a result the finished vehicle looks nicer while you own it and will sell for a higher price when its time to move on!
Drawbacks of fitting alloy wheels…

  • The downside is that the alloys used for these sorts of wheel are also softer than steel so they are more prone to damage, making them look scruffy and unattractive whenever you walk up to it or see it in the drive.
  • As a result, when you come to sell a vehicle with damaged alloy wheels you’ll either get a offered a lower price than you expected to get or you’ll find it more difficult to find a buyer.
  • The damaged wheels will make a prospective buyer think you’ve not looked after the vehicle properly and there may be other damage that isn’t so visible, meaning you could easily lose a potential buyer.
How much difference does it make?

  • The difference between a car with damaged alloys and the same car with showroom condition alloys is typically £500 to £1000.
  • The one with damaged wheels will definitely take longer to sell.
  • Whenever you see your car you smile with pride at how good it looks
  • Refurbishing your alloy wheels is one great way to customise your car and make it unique to you

So the reasons to come to us are…

  • Damaged alloy wheels, apart from making your car or motor bike look scruffy can also hit you in the pocket when you come to sell your vehicle.
  • Even if you don’t own your vehicle, and lease it instead, you’ll be penalised at the end of the lease term. The first thing a vehicle inspector notices when they assess your vehicle at the end of a lease are the wheels. If they are damaged you’ll end up paying for them anyway, possibly to the full value of a replacement set of new wheels
  • So, in summary, whether you own or lease your vehicle it pays to take care of your wheels and get them repaired if they become damaged.
