THE DIAMOND CUT PROCESS
Our onsite DCR3 Diamond Cutting process in Tewkesbury is our premium service that offers the finest finish for your diamond alloy wheels. The precision cut applied to the rims or full face removes only what is required, allowing a stunning quality finish compared to other alloy wheel refurbishment methods.
The process involves cleaning your alloys using a specialist cleaning process which ensures all dirt, tar, and grit is removed completely before any repairs are carried out. This allows our technicians to get a better look at the condition of the wheel to determine what repair processes are required. Once the alloy wheel is clean it is painted if required, before the surface of the wheel is precision cut on our DCR3 lathe to leave a high cut Diamond finish.
The process is completed by coating the rim with a scratch proof lacquer and baked in our alloy wheel oven. At this stage the alloys are carefully quality checked by our technicians to ensure it meets our high standards of finish. The tyres are then refitted, inflated to the correct pressure and re balanced.
There are many individual looks you can create with our diamond cutting finish, combining it with special painted inserts and custom rims to create a look that is unique for your own car. Our technicians are on hand to talk to you in person about the options available.
We believe a Diamond Cut finish is the best an alloy can get! Our Diamond cut alloy repair service is hassle-free and quality assured.
