Cracked Rim Repair

Cracked wheel repair refers to the process of fixing a wheel that has been damaged due to a crack or other forms of damage. A wheel can become cracked due to a variety of reasons, such as impact damage from potholes or hitting a curb, overloading, or simply wear and tear over time.

Automobile wheels can crack for a variety of reasons. Impact damage from hitting a pothole or curb, overloading the vehicle beyond its recommended weight limit, and driving on rough or uneven terrain are common causes of wheel damage. Additionally, wheels can become cracked over time due to wear and tear, especially if they are not properly maintained or if they are exposed to harsh environmental conditions

  • The damaged wheel is first thoroughly cleaned and inspected to determine the extent of the damage. This includes checking for any hidden cracks or structural damage that may not be immediately visible.

  • The wheel is then prepped for repair by grinding down the cracked area to remove any damaged metal and create a clean surface for the welding process. This helps to ensure a strong and durable repair.

  • The alloy TIG welding process is then used to repair the crack. TIG welding involves using a tungsten electrode to create an electric arc that melts the metal and fuses it together. A filler rod made of a similar alloy is also used to fill in the cracked area and reinforce the repair.

  • The weld is carefully built up, layer by layer, until the crack is completely filled in and the wheel is restored to its original shape and strength.

  • Once the welding is complete, the wheel is smoothed and finished to ensure that there are no sharp edges or rough spots that could cause damage or affect the performance of the tire.

  • The repaired wheel is then balanced and reinstalled on the vehicle, and a final inspection is performed to ensure that the repair is secure and the wheel is safe to use.

Overall, alloy TIG welding is a precise and effective method for repairing cracked wheels, and can restore damaged wheels to their original strength and integrity. With proper care and maintenance, a wheel that has been repaired with TIG welding can provide reliable and safe performance for many years to come.


The repair process usually involves assessing the extent of the damage and determining the appropriate repair method. The repair process typically requires specialized tools and expertise, and should only be performed by a trained and experienced professional..


It is important to get a cracked wheel repaired as soon as possible to prevent further damage and ensure the safety of the vehicle and its passengers. Driving on a cracked wheel can cause the crack to spread, leading to more severe damage or even a complete failure of the wheel while driving.
