Curb Rash is damage to a wheel caused by bumping or rubbing up against a curb or a parking barrier. Curb Rash cause unsightly scratches around the edge of the wheel and sometimes other areas of the wheel. Geneva Reconditioning has the tools and machinery to resurface wheels and Certified Technicians to make sure your wheels are repaired to factory condition. If you have a wheel or wheels that are in need of repair please call Geneva Reconditioning.
Geneva reconditioning is set up to offer CNC machining on a state-of-the-art CNC wheel lathe. This device is completely computerized and cuts a fine layer of aluminum from the entire face of the rim with exacting precision, producing a perfect finish equal to or better than original factory finishes.
Original equipment manufacturers are increasingly putting machined rims on their new vehicles. A machined faced wheel has a bright finish much like polished aluminum. However, upon closer inspection, machined rims have tiny circular machine lines cut into the aluminum. The only way to properly repair a machined wheel is with a CNC lathe. Some wheel repair providers offer a cheap re-paint technique when it comes to machined wheels.
Wheel Bends Are Normally Caused By Road Hazards Such As Debris In The Road, Potholes, Or Uneven Pavement, But They Can Also Be Caused By Hitting A Curb Or Other Parking Barrier.
The severity of a wheel bend can differ depending on the damage to the wheel. Some bends give the wheel an oblong or octagonal shape, causing a flat area in the circumference of the wheel, creating an uneven ride. Harder dents or impacts can create leaks. Longer impacts can create vibration issues – knocking the wheel out of balance or out of round, and causing performance issues, especially at higher speeds.
Keep in mind that every case of wheel damage is different, and often more than one type of damage can be present on a wheel.
