There is no technology available to repair chrome.

Repairing a wheel is a process where coatings are not removed, and a “spot” repair is made.  Repairs are done on many used car lots by mobile operations.  No quality or process standards are enforced, but most consumers can’t see the repair.  Durability is low, with any wheel inspection can be easily seen.  There is no technology available to repair chrome.  A wheel can be entirely re-chromed, but ReStock does not offer that service.

ReStock’s remanufacturing is a process that begins by removing all coatings without affecting the wheel material properties.  Some companies burn coatings off, and or use stripping processes which destroy the aluminum heat treatment. Once the wheel is bare, weld repairs and or straightening can be done.  Wheels are then shot blasted which improves the material properties in your wheel.  After blasting, wheels are pre-treated using a process which is required by all of the worlds OEM automobile manufactures to improve the wheel’s coating durability.  Next wheels are powder coated to exacting time and temperature standards.  Depending on the color, the wheel may require a base coat of a metallic color to attain a perfect match to the Original Equipment color. Next, wheels are either CNC cut on the face to give the OEM metallic finish and powder clear coated or powder coated clear with no additional processing.  All ReStock powder coatings used are approved by most of the World’s largest OEMs.

Please allow approximately 2 to 5 days for remanufacturing.
