Some of the most common damage that can occur to tyres and wheels is when poorly surfaced roads and potholes lead to damage in the wheels. This can include punctures occurring. In some cases, these punctures and can be repaired and in other instances, the tyre might have to be completely replaced.

Alloy wheels can be dented if you hit a pothole at a high speed. For this reason, it is always worth checking your alloys when you get home if at any point you have accidentally driven through a pothole. Not only will a dented or damaged alloy not look very attractive but it can also affect the way that your vehicle drives.

One of the most common ways that alloys are damaged is by accidentally scrapping them along a kerb. This usually happens when parking your vehicles. IN some cases scuffs and marks can be cleaned out of the alloy and in other cases, you might need to visit a company like the one mentioned above to get the alloy repaired or replaced.
