WELD CRACK IN WHEEL
Occasionally the impact from a pothole will bend a wheel to the point that it will crack. Sometimes after it cracks the wheel will pop back into shape leaving only the crack. Other times the wheel will remain bent and cracked.
Either way, as long as the crack starts on the back edge of the wheel and travels in towards the barrel, we can typically weld it with our TIG welder and get you back on your way.
TOUCHLESS TIRE MOUNTING AND
When your wheels and tires are too important to trust to an average tire shop, let us show you how easy it is to dismount and remount tires on our new state of the art Hunter Revolution Tire Changer. We will then Roadforce Balance the wheel/tire combo on our new Hunter GSP9700 Balancer.

BENT WHEEL STRAIGHTENING
Sometimes the impact of a pothole or other road hazard will cause a wheel to be bent out of round. This will cause vibrations while driving and accelerated wear on tires, shocks and other vehicle components.
With careful precision, Prince Wheel Services is able to slowly pull out the bends in alloy wheels with a combination of heat and hydraulics. Our wheel straightening equipment and techniques allow us the capability of bringing a bent wheel back to within +/- 5 thousandths of an inch of being perfectly true.
Our computer controlled CNC lathe allows us to remove as little as one thousandths of an inch of material from the face of the wheel if needed.
With this precise equipment we are able to repair damage to wheels that have a machined finish on their faces and leave them with fresh lathe lines just like the original finish had.
After the machining process, we then send the wheels through our wash and pre-treatment station to prepare them for a durable powder clear coat application and curing in our oven.
Many wheels with minor curb damage can be successfully repaired without removing them from the vehicle or removing the tire from the wheel.
Our technicians will smooth out the damaged area, then prep and paint it to blend in with the rest of the wheel's original finish. Finally, a durable automotive grade clear coat is applied to protect the repair and match the original finish. Most repairs are unable to be found once completed.
Anyone who has ever bought a set of wheels or had to replace a damaged wheel knows the potential costs of today's high quality rims.
Prince Wheel Services has dedicated its business to reducing the cost of getting your vehicle looking good again by repairing these wheels at a fraction of their replacement cost.
CHROME SHADOW AND HYPERSILVER COLORS
Ask any number of BMW M5 owners on the m5board and you will quickly learn that we are one of the few places in the country that have perfected the very tricky art of restoring Chrome shadow and hypersilver colors.
Almost weekly we receive wheel shipments from all corners of the map from owners who want that original look back on their wheels. Why not join them?
Whether your wheels are in need of a complete refinishing job to bring them back to a like new condition or if you are looking to put a custom color on your wheels or some other parts, powder coating is the answer.
Our technicians will remove the old finish from the item and repair any damage. Then a trip through our wash and pre-treatment station will get them ready for the powder coat application.
Once the powder has been applied, the item is baked at a moderate temperature to melt and cure the powder without affecting the integrity of the metal or alloy.
