Say No To Cracks With Wheel Welding
If your wheel is hit hard enough, it will crack. It depends on the strength of the alloy, the design of the wheel and the profile of the tire. If your car comes across a deep pothole or a raised manhole cover, it will certainly develop cracks.
Cracks Aren’t Good
Cracks in your rim are no good, and they can prove to be very dangerous. They can let the air out of the tire without any warning. Sometimes the crack of the wheel is so small that they are covered and aren’t easily seen. Even if these cracks aren’t posing an immediate problem, they can quickly spiral into a bigger problem.
The reason is, once a crack is there it doesn’t require another very hard hit to widen it. If the crack widens and the rim splits, then you may lose the entire wheel of the car.
The location and the direction of the crack need to be taken into account before welding the wheel. The technicians at Kwicksilver are trained to handle many cracks in the wheel. They can also take care of the metal fatigue and make use of only top quality TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welders.
At Kwicksilver we ensure that the wheel is straightened before welding. If a sharp impact has cracked the rim, it certainly would have bent it as well, and any attempt to straighten the wheel after welding may break the welding.
