Ballymena Carrickfergus

At East Coast Coatings, we provide the best alloy refurbishment service in Northern Ireland. From our base in Larne, we provide services to customers from all over Northern Ireland such as Ballymena, Carrickfergus, Ballyclare, Glengormley, Newtonabbey, and Belfast. Providing the highest standard of alloy refurbishment is what we do best. Country roads surrounding areas such as Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Ballyclare, can cause substantial damage to your cars’ alloys. With years of experience in the Northern Ireland car industry, we know exactly the signs to look out for when your alloys are in need of refurbishment. 

Alloy refurbishment is a cheaper alternative to purchasing a brand-new set of alloys. However, if your alloys become too damaged and the signs are overlooked then refurbishment is not a viable option. This is why at East Coast Coatings we want our customers from areas such as Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Ballyclare, to be aware of the signs their alloys need refurbished. 

Here are the signs to look out for: 

Alloy Corrosion 

It is always important to remember that alloys can last for years if maintained properly! Alloy corrosion is mainly caused by brake dust. Everytime you brake, particles in the form of highly-corrosive dust fly off. Moisture causes this dust to stick to the wheel where over time it burns into the wheel causing pitting and eventually corrosion. Many of our customers from Ballymena, Carrickfergus and Ballyclare experience alloy corrosion. It is important to look out for corrosion in our alloys as they can lead to under inflation in your tyres. 

Alloy Wheel Dents and Scratches 

It’s hardly possible to keep your wheels scuff-free! Not just the dust and debris, the small stones can cause fine scratches on the alloy wheels. Hitting pot holes at speed can cause dents in your alloys as well. We all know some of the roads in Northern Ireland can be liable to the odd pothole, especially country roads around areas in Ballymena and Ballyclare. 

Steering Issues

Problems with your alloys can have a detrimental effect on your steering handling. Dents and alloy damage can cause issues such as:

-Vibrations in your steering wheel and seat

-Unresponsive handling of your car

-Increased effort required when turning your steering wheel 

-Thumping or rattling sound when turning your car
