Alloy Wheel Diamond Cutting in Birmingham

“High-end professional service at reasonable prices, no corners cut.”

VA diamond cut wheel is easily recognisable promoting a shiny bare metal effect on the wheel, increasingly popular nowadays is the combination of a painted colour surface, sitting alongside the bare metal.

The diamond cut finish on the coloured areas of the wheel is achieved by firstly painting the wheel with the desired colour and then using a diamond tipped cutter with the wheel in a lathe, removing a wafer thin layer from the surface of the alloy. The resulting are a highly glossed colour finish to compliment the bare metal highly polished finish of the wheel.

Midlands Alloy Wheels can perform diamond cut finish to wheels of up to 28″ in diameter. Diamond cutting is sometimes referred to as diamond polishing due to the highly polished appearance of the finished wheel.

Vehicle Remapping

Professional Vehicle Remapping Service

High-Performance Remapping Service in Birmingham

“High-end professional service at reasonable prices, no corners cut.”

Vehicle remapping is different to chipping. Vehicle remapping the car does NOT involve opening the actual Engine Control Unit (ECU), but instead uses a separate remapping software which links to the cars ECU. The cars current maps are downloaded from the ECU, our software then remaps them (our software automatically finds the optimal remapping settings for each car) and then the new maps are uploaded back to the ECU. The process can usually be completed within 30-45 minutes.

FUEL EFFICIENCY

Our technicians have developed a way of optimising the settings stored in your cars Engine Control Unit (ECU) so that your car will be more fuel efficient. Typically you will gain an extra 6-10 MPG (or as much as 10%) after remapping your car.

PERFORMANCE

In addition to giving you better fuel efficiency, these optimisations will drastically improve your cars performance, giving you typically up to 20%-30% more BHP and torque, making your car far more responsive.

DRIVEABILITY

Using our sophisticated software to smooth out the power graph, and this in combination with the extra power gained makes your car instantly more drivable by tuning the maps on your cars ECU. The hardware on your car is not changed, we remap the car through the OBD/II port.

What is Remapping?

Vehicle remapping will make your car faster, more powerful and result in better fuel efficiency, there is also the added benefit of giving the car a better drive-ability than the usual “factory T”.

In Layman Terms How Does Re-mapping Make All of These Added Benefits Possible?

Manufacturers by law are required to add a dip to the power of your engine between 2k and 3k RPM. Originally meant to increase fuel efficiency, however, all this has meant in reality is that people just put their foot down more to counteract this dipping effect, therefore, using more fuel instead of less. Vehicle Manufacturers often also actively limit the performance of a car to enable them to release a sports version of the same car.

What cars can be remapped?

Vehicle remapping can be done to most makes and models of cars, during the vehicle remapping process one of the steps is to remove this dip between 2k and 3k that manufacturers implement, making for a smoother power graph as you move up through the gears. This smoother graph means you actually have to change gear less often, therefore increasing fuel efficiency. Another step in the vehicle remapping process is to remove limiters essentially making your car perform like the sports model.

Diesel and turbo diesels usually achieve the best performance increases in both the torque and bhp settings with increased fuel efficiency. Petrol cars become more fuel efficient and achieve higher than average factory settings in overall performance.

#1 Alloy Wheel Refurbishment Service in Birmingham

“High-end professional service at reasonable prices, no corners cut.”

Scraping your rims on the kerb is frustrating and can make your car look unsightly. Corrosion can be another reason your alloy wheels are in need of a revamp as it builds up under the lacquer, causing your wheels to have a cloudy white look to polished wheels and cause’s the lacquer to peel/flake.

Midland Alloy Wheel Refurbishment & Tyre Specialists are experts in all areas of alloy wheel refurbishment. All wheel refurbishments are done in-house by our wheel specialists. The process usually takes a couple of days as everything gets stripped, thoroughly cleaned and primed before the refurbishment takes place this also means that wheels may need repairing from being curbed or damaged.

The Refurbishment Process:

STAGE ONE:A

Wheels are removed from the customers car, tyres are then stripped off alloys in-house using our highly sophisticated tyre equipment (price reduced if wheels are brought in already off tyres).

STAGE TWO:

The wheel is replaced in a chemical solution for several hours in order to remove any old paint, lacquer and any accumulated deposits. We do this for every wheel to provide a perfect key for the subsequent paint and lacquer processes it is then thoroughly washed to remove all chemical deposits and dirt before being low pressure blasted to create the best possible surface condition. Any repairs requiring welding to restore the surface of the rim or straightening of buckled wheel is undertaken at this stage having received customer authorisation.

STAGE THREE:

The wheel is placed on a conveyor system that passes through an oven to remove any trapped air before moving into a spray booth for a coating of powder coating primer. It then passes back into the oven to be baked to ensure curing process has been completed. The wheel is then left to cool to a temperature suitable for painting.

STAGE FOUR:

The wheel is professionally spray painted both inside and outside before being flashed off in oven, then inspected for further coats if necessary. Finally a powder lacquer is applied to the face and inside (powder lacquers are highly durable) to protect the wheel from salt, brake dust and other elements the wheel then returns to the oven prior to final inspection when cool.

STAGE FIVE:

Each wheel is carefully inspected to ensure that the finish is near enough if not the same to the original factory finish. We do not allow any wheels to leave our unit until we feel that it is 100 percent upto our standards and ready to be returned to the customer. Tyres are then re fitted to alloy wheels with new valves before being safely fitted to the customer vehicle. We have various different colour finishes available.
