Company Repairs Aluminum Automotive Wheels After Collision

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

Efforts to develop this market niche include a proprietary patented process based upon a PA state funded technology development program with Lehigh University, growing acceptance by the insurance market, and a five year plan to expand by both regional & national marketing and distribution of WHEEL COLLISION CENTER repair/refinish wheel services & refinished wheel sales around the USA.
