Split Rims cost more to refurbish when compared to normal 1 piece Alloy Wheels, as there’s more work required when repairing and refurbishing them, Obviously as the Alloy Splits up into multiple pieces which all need Refurbishing separately.
Normally Split Rims have a polished outer dish, which requires Aluminium Polishing and then lacquering. If there is deep kerbing damage to that dish it may require welding-(Bentley Split Rim), that’s if the customer wants the edges of the dish to look perfect again.
A lot of the Split Rims we refurbish require Straightening on the dish as the deep dishes are easily damaged, especially when they have been driven on, with low profile tyres. This is because the low profile tyres, do not offer much protection compared to larger profile tyres.
