Our Wheel Remanufacturing Process

Scroll down the page to see our unique alloy wheel remanufacturing process, carried out by our expert technicians at our state of the art wheel repair facility in the North West, Manchester.

Stage 1 - Assess Damage


After booking in, we can collect and redeliver within a 50 mile radius of Rader HQ. Upon arrival, and if fitted, tyres, weights & valves are carefully removed. Tyres & wheels are individually quality assessed for damage, after all, we cannot put back what isn’t there!




Stage 2 - Surface Preparation


Old coatings and any white rust or oxidisation is chemically removed. Hot chemical cleaning, drying, alloy dressing & meticulous surface preparation is conducted, prior to a final visual quality inspection.


Stage 3 - Priming


Process de-gassing & pre-heating is conducted. Powder coating primer is then applied to ensure excellent physical & visual properties. After primer application, all wheels are conveyed through a bespoke high temperature curing oven, at a fixed time and temperature.




Stage 4 - Base Coat & Lacquer


All wheels are manually quality checked prior to further application of an OE approved range of environmentally friendly water-based colours. After wet colour application, original equipment quality powder coating alloy wheel acrylic is applied.


Stage 5 - Quality Control


The fully coated wheel is cured within a specially designed curing oven, ensuring that excellent flow and glass-like clarity are achieved, mirroring where possible the original finish quality. After remanufacture is completed, and quality control visual inspection sign-off is in place, all wheels are rebuilt with valves & tyres, prior to being laser balanced, for proud return to our clients.
