Can Kerbed Alloys be Repaired?

0800 840 4040

If you’ve got a set of alloy wheels on your car, the chances are that you’ll want to keep them in excellent condition. Unfortunately, accidents do happen, scuffed alloys and kerbed alloy wheels are an all-too-common occurrence. Kerbed alloys most commonly happen while parking or while turning into a corner, often because the driver has misjudged their wheel position and caused it to strike the kerb. The good news is that it’s not as serious as cracking or denting your alloy and there’s normally no need to replace the wheel, which is where Prestige Wheels comes in.

A kerbed alloy can vary in severity from cosmetic to serious, so it’s generally a good idea to get any damage checked out if you think it might become a problem. A kerbed alloy can have implications on your car’s performance if you drive on one. At worst a kerbed alloy can worsen into something more serious like a structural crack if not taken care of.

One of the biggest questions we get asked regularly is whether it’s cost-effective for you to get your wheel fixed when it’s kerbed. We can rectify any and all damage to your alloy wheel and have it looking brand new thanks to our tried and tested methods, and our attention to detail. While you may not be too concerned about cosmetic damage, the resulting damage from not fixing it if it’s masking a more serious problem with your wheel could be expensive.


When you book a repair in with us, we don’t just take a look at the surface. We go in-depth into the condition of your wheel to find out exactly what is wrong, and we can detect problems that might go unnoticed with a more cosmetic fix.
