Wheel-Tech, a Chicago Rim Repair Center, Saves People Money With Wheel Repair Instead of Replacement

CHICAGO, IL--(Marketwire - May 17, 2010) -  Did you hit a pothole and bend a rim on your car? Get it fixed! Don't replace it. 

Everyone hits potholes. You can't avoid it. If you hit one with enough force, the tire may be ruined and your rim bent. Replacing the tire is one thing; there are tire stores everywhere. When you go back to the dealer to buy a rim to match the ones on your car, everyone is surprised by the cost. Fortunately, rim repair and wheel straightening is a cost-efficient alternative available to car owners.

The average aluminum alloy rim costs $400+ regardless of the make and model of the vehicle. For example, a Nissan Altima with 17" alloy rims can cost over $500 per rim. Most people assume this cost will only apply to higher end luxury automobiles, but this is not the case. 

Fortunately, there is an alternative to replacing bent rims. Rims that are hopelessly bent are returned to a "like-new" condition for a fraction of the cost. Wheel-Tech uses specialized machinery to straighten the rims so that they run true and reconditions them to look new. Most wheels are returned within 24 hours and in some cases the same day. 

Some rims are so severely damaged that the rims cannot be brought back to spec. Wheel-Tech does not charge the customer for time spent on the rim if the damage cannot be fixed.

Also, Wheel-Tech uses a huge database of used OEM rims and often will find an exact replacement -- once again, for a fraction of the cost.

Wheel-Tech, Inc. is a Chicago rim shop located in Highland Park, IL (just north of Chicago) and they have been repairing and straightening rims for the past 10 years.
