Starting out in a garage thirty-two years ago with two customers, we founded our wheel repair and fabrication business in Hampton Roads, VA. Decades later, customers still come to us for necessary rim repair and wheel replacement services. Because of that experience, we’re passionate about repairing rims and getting the maintenance you need all year long. We know though, that not everyone knows as much about rims as we do. With that in mind, here are 3 reasons you may want to consider getting your rims repaired.
1. Improve Gas Mileage
Damaged rims don’t only cause uneven wear on your tires, but they can make your car harder to handle and may reduce your gas mileage. How do you know if you need repair? You may hear a thumping sound when you drive or feel a constant vibration through your steering wheel. If you haven’t experienced this but notice problems with your car’s handling or changes in your gas mileage, get your wheels checked.
2. Prevent Disaster
When it comes to rims and wheel repair in Hampton Roads, VA, in a best-case scenario, this means that you will need to replace your tires sooner; in a worst-case scenario, you could be risking a possibly deadly tire blowout. You can avoid these risks by being proactive about rim maintenance.
3. Save Money
In general, if it costs more to repair a wheel than to replace it, go ahead and buy a new one. If the cost of repair is less than the cost of a new wheel, have it fixed. Repaired rims are generally just as strong and reliable as new ones.
