Useful Information

What is a diamond cut or polished alloy wheel?

Diamond cut alloys have a different appearance to the more conventional painted alloy wheel. This is often described as a high shine finish, upon close inspection, that resembles the finish of a CD. When you look very closely you can see very fine groves, just like a CD, and this provides a highly shiny finish to the alloy wheel.

How are diamond cut or polished alloys produced?

Traditionally they are machine lathe to cut a further edge into the alloy. This would be a machined alloy wheel repair, and obviously cost significantly more than a standard painted alloy to refurbish. The downside of these repairs is that you can only cut the alloy around two times before they have to be scrapped. We are able to repair the damage by removing the lacquer and repairing just the damage area before relacquering the wheel again.

Why are diamond cut or polished alloys different to repair?

This is simply down to the fact that they are not painted like traditional alloys which could be repaired while still on the car via a localised repair. With these type of alloys they need to be removed from the car, bead broken from the car and refinished to provide a consistent finish to the whole alloy.

All repairs must be done by a specialist refinisher who has the correct equipment to ensure the alloy is returned to its original condition, and is safe to be used on the vehicle again.

Which manufacturers use diamond and laser cut alloys?

It can be assumed that 'prestige' manufactures such as Mercedes Benz and BMW are the places to expect diamond cut alloys on a new car, and this is certainly the case on many models. However, even the more mainstream manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Ford, Nissan, Peugeot etc also feature diamond and laser cut finished alloys these days.
