Potholes and Pothole Damage

Nationally potholes are an all too common a problem. In the Midlands the local authorities repair in excess of 10,000 potholes per annum and pay out in compensation in excess of £20 million pounds.

At GT Alloys we specialise in the repair and straightening of all types of alloy wheels. Typically the repair takes a minimum of one day subject to inspection of your wheel/wheels. We would hope to keep you mobile during the process by loaning you one of our loan wheels and tyres.

Typical symptoms of a buckled wheel are :-

The tyre will not stay inflated for any lengthy period.

There is untoward vibration/wobble through the steering column.


A buckled wheel is now a major fail on an MOT.
