Aluminum wheels can be damaged by potholes, curbs,
and crashes. Often, bent wheels are thrown out or sold for scrap, and a
costly new wheel is purchased. Pennsylvania-based WHEEL COLLISION
CENTER (WCC) restores damaged wheels to factory specifications with a
patented wheel straightening machinery.
Wheels also can be welded to repair cracks, broken sections, a gouged wheel lip, or cosmetically restore the face of a scratched wheel. A complete polishing, painting and powder coating facility provides WCC the capability to restore a wheel to 100% OEM mechanical and finish specifications.
The significance of this development can be ascertained by doing
some simple mathematics:
|Vehicles in U.S.||190 Million||200 Million|
|Wheels per Vehicle||Multiply by 4||Multiply by 4|
|Percentage of Vehicles with Aluminum Wheels||35 percent||50 percent|
|Percentage of Wheels that are Damaged||1 percent||10 percent|
|Average Repair Cost per Wheel||$125||$130|
|MARKET TOTAL:||$330 Million||$5.2 Billion|
