Help! I’ve scuffed my alloy wheels!

It’s that moment we all dread, you’re parallel parking edging towards the curb and hear that horrible scraping sound followed by many profanities! You get out of the car to see a big scuff down the side of your alloy wheel, so now what?

If left, a deep scuff can not only look unsightly but can (in poor weather) cause the wheel to corrode so it’s really not a good idea to leave a damaged alloy.

That said a professional repair can be costly but will give the best result, depending on the extent of the damage a professional repair could set you back about £90. There are a number of products on the market that allow you to do a DIY repair that if done carefully can be very effective on cosmetic surface scuffs.

So do your research and if in doubt check with an independent garage what would be the best course of action for your damaged wheel.
