What are Diamond Cut Alloys?

Generally you can tell if your alloys have been diamond cut, as they are more than one colour. The diamond cut process uses a lathe to take a thin layer of the painted finish off to reveal the shiny metal finish. They are then lacquered to protect the metal for years to come.

This process can create highly complicated, decorative patterns. Obviously using a lathe with this much precision requires someone that knows what they’re doing. It isn’t a process that anyone can do at home. Most places that offer alloy wheel refurbishment don’t offer the diamond cutting process, because it takes specialist equipment and experienced people. We are experts in diamond cut alloys.

Refurbished Alloys

Recently we’ve refurbished some diamond cut wheels on a VW Golf. When the car came to us the alloys were badly scuffed, which was detracting from the cars styling. The owner felt they could use a complete refurb to make them look like new. You can see how amazing these diamond cut wheels look now below. The black and silver effect looks really smart, and the owner was really pleased with how they had turned out. Refurbing your wheels is cheaper and greener than buying new alloys. When they can look as good as this why would you even consider buying new?


Before and After

“I managed to damage some ‘diamond cut’ alloy wheels. Following an internet search, looking at various reviews and then calling Kevin @ Silverims, I made an appointment to go and see him and get his advice. He explained the repair process from start to finish and gave (by comparison to other companies) a very competitive price.

I booked my car in with him, the work was completed to a very high standard and collected at the time agreed.

Assuming the paint doesn’t wash off in the rain (very unlikely as it’s baked on during the process), I would certainly use his services again.”
