Wheels are one of the most important parts of any vehicle, and they must always be in good repair. A damaged wheel may not stay seated on the bead and hold air, while a bent or dented wheel may not enable the tire to properly track, leading to compromised handling, as well as a bothersome vibration, which can cause suspension and drive train parts wear. There is no need to drive with a damaged wheel when you can get a remanufactured factory wheel by Replace. This factory alloy wheel will appear and function just like a new wheel, and it won't drain your wallet.
When Replace receives factory alloy wheels, they carefully inspect them to make sure they’re repairable within their safety standards. Any wheel with damage that compromises the structural integrity such as severe dents, elongated lug holes, or outer diameter defects, is rejected. If accepted, the wheel is straightened to tolerances tighter than specified by the OEM to ensure smooth driving, and all gouges are welded and hand detailed to exact specifications. The old wheel finish and all contaminants are removed. The applicable finish is then applied, including powder coating or liquid painting. If polishing is required, the entire barrel (not only the face of the wheel) is polished using state-of-the-art equipment. A final step is powder or liquid clear coating.
The wheels are remanufactured to meet or exceed SAE and ASTM wheel testing standards. The Radial Fatigue Test stresses the wheel with a heavier than normal load in a straight line simulation, while the Rotary Fatigue Test stresses the wheel with a heavier than normal load in a cornering situation. The Side Impact Test simulates impacting/curbing wheels at high speed. Replace remanufactured wheels meet or exceed the standards for these tests and perform the same or better than new wheels.
Replace® is dedicated to providing original equipment (OE) quality body parts and lights without the high OE price. Rather than deal with so-called "universal" parts that may or may not fit your vehicle, Replace sells only parts that have OE quality fit, function and appearance. They believe such parts should be affordable so you can repair your vehicle to its former state, restoring your pride of ownership and preserving its resale value. With Replace parts you can just say no to high dealer prices.
