About our Rim Repair Service

alloy wheel repair and a passion for working on cars

Wheel Buddy started from a genuine passion for cars

From being kids tearing apart their cars in a home garage , modifying them with nothing but paperback guides and phone calls to friends and family

The passion evolved into painting and repairing small things like mountain bikes and brake calipers, then eventually painting panels and lastly learning alloy wheel refurbishment, wheel painting and rim repair.

After perfecting the craft or alloy wheel repair - The Wheel Buddy shop was born.

Truth be told, Wheel Painting and Alloy Wheel Repair is a challenging trade.
The reason being is that wheels are notoriously covered in grease , road dirt and silicone from tyre shine which is detrimental to a good paint job.
On top of this wheels are never flat, they have shapes and contours which can only be worked by hand.
It requires patience and knowledge to get a good result.

Our goal is to provide an affordable Wheel Painting and Alloy Wheel Repair solution to the city of Melbourne.
