Rim Repair

If your wheels have cosmetic damage on the rim, don’t worry, you’re not alone! It happens to just about every vehicle out there. It’s easy to scrape a curb while turning or parking, which leaves your wheels with scratches and deep gashes. On top of that, you can’t always prepare for unexpected road hazards or deep potholes that can take a chunk out of your rims. Whatever the case may be with your damaged wheels, Puget Sound M.A.R.S. can repair and restore the original finish. Whether you’re driving factory or custom wheels, our rim repair service can correct scratches, cracks and restore shine. This is a popular service because it’s a cost-effective solution compared to buying new wheels!

We know it might be tempting, but don’t waste your time or money with do-it-yourself kits. They usually just come with sandpaper and silver paint. Trust us, it’s much better to work with the original wheel than to try to fix a botched job. The results of a kit won’t come close to the multiple steps we take to make your wheels shine again. Puget Sound M.A.R.S. is the #1 local provider of rim repair services because our team uses state-of-the-art equipment and stays educated on the latest products and techniques. Local automotive dealerships call us when they are re-selling a vehicle that was traded in because they know the quality of our work is professional grade.

Although every case is different, for rim repair we typically strip off the old finish (there should be a protective later that needs to go), sand and smooth out the rim, apply base coat, primer, paint and a new, protective clear top coat. If necessary, we use professional fillers to fill in deep scratches and imperfections. Standard colors for the service are black, silver and gun metal grey, with custom colors available for an additional charge. Just like with our other automotive reconditioning services, we can match any color paint to your original or aftermarket rim.

Puget Sound M.A.R.S. repairs damaged wheels at your convenience with our flexible services that can be scheduled or same-day. Stop by the shop with your vehicle so we can assess the damage, or send us photos via email or Facebook. Whether the wheels stay on the car for your appointment is up to you. Our rim repair services come with a 100% customer satisfaction guarantee – we are confident that we can restore your damaged wheels to their original painted or polished finish. The men from M.A.R.S. will make your wheels look like new.

Maybe your tires aren’t scratched or dented but they just don’t shine like they used to. We can help with that, too! Polished wheels can become shabby from oxidation, acid spray, and even brake dust. When you get your car detailed, your wheels might stick out like a sore thumb by looking dull and dingy. At Puget Sound M.A.R.S. we will use a combination of rim repair and restoration to deliver the best results possible. Your wheels will be attractive again and protected from future damage.
