There are many different reasons that cause a crack in the wheel, some of which include potholes, curbs and metal fatigue. KwickSilver professionals are trained to handle these types of repairs and use only the highest quality TIG (Tungsten Inert Gas) welders. Not all wheel cracks are safe to weld, such as those located on the spoke of the rim. If this is the case, your KwickSilver technician will locate a replacement OEM rim for a fraction of what a new rim would cost.
