Thanks for the reply. I called them up. They sadly don't do repainting.

OT: I sent my contact details on the yahoo mail ID I found on your profile.

Default Re: Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists - India

I recently got two of my alloy wheels done from Mr. Sai Alloy Wheels in Pune. The person charged Rs. 1800/- for each wheel. (Alternative was to either buy at cost of Rs. 11k per rim from Fiat, or to buy 4 new after market alloy rims at about Rs. 23k.)

He had an equipment that allowed a very large force to be exerted on part of the wheel to bend it back to shape. In case the bend is too much, he would heat the that part of wheel with industrial gas torch, and it would immediately become somewhat "soft" and could be bent easily. Most important, he had simple techniques to ensure that the wheel is 100% back to its original shape (done by rotating and checking the play).

In all, I was quite satisfied, and both the wheels could take the tubeless tyre without any problem.

(Of course, there is another of discussion on team-bhp saying it is a bad idea to get the alloy wheel corrected like this; it may develop additional stresses.)

The Inner side of Rear Left Alloy Wheel in our Elite i20 got bent. Our Father was chauffeured-driven and he says that the car did not travel over any pothole and it is manufacturing defect.

I enquired at Alloy Wheel Repair Specialists based in Thane over phone and the person requested to send the photo of damaged alloy wheel over whatsapp to detect whether it can be repaired or not.
I sent the photos to him. He gave me an estimate of Rs.4400/- including Pickup-and-Delivery to my doorstep.
Around 2000-2500 goes for Courier Charges and similar for Repairs. He further told me that they will repair the wheel on the day they receive the rim from courier and try to send it back the same day if possible. The Courier Service used will be Bluedart. He told me to pack the wheel (only Rim) in a smallest box possible to avoid huge courier charges.

The photos of damaged alloy wheel-

I have not enquired the rate of New Alloy Wheel at dealership. Any idea of cost of same?

BTW, is it a manufacture defect?
Should I go for repairs at above repair Specialist?

My father does a trip to Mumbai every week or fortnight. So he can drop the rim for repairs and collect the same after repairs.

EDIT: - The person at AWRS asked me on which alloy wheel was this damage. When I told Rear Left, he was surprised that the front tyre escaped and how come rear tyre got damaged.

1) Try to approach any known tyre shop/Car Scrap Markets or Dealers for procuring a single alloy wheel and you might just find one.
2) Inquire about the cost of one alloy at the Service centre. This is the safest bet.

Repairing an alloy wheel isn't favourable, though it might be the cheaper thing to do, it is certainly not the Safest.

The wheels/tyres are the only contact that you have with the Road, everything else in the car is dependent on them including you. Take a call.

I had checked with my Hyundai Dealer. He quoted me Rs.11798/- for a Single Alloy.

My father has agreed to drop the wheel at AWRS, Thane when he visits Mumbai next time. Then the repairs would cost around Rs. 2000-2500/-.

I would like to take a chance and check whether an Alloy can be repaired or not though the cost is a little bit on higher side.
