A Guide on Rim Damage
Wouldn’t it be great if all the roads were as smooth as the roads in vehicle advertisements? Well, in reality, not all road conditions are the same, as you can come across unpaved, rough, and bumpy roads full of potholes. Sometimes, you accidentally hit a curb when making a turn which means your rims take a beating. Sadly, it happens all the time. Even though they are made of metal, they are not unbreakable. Rims are vulnerable to various unavoidable road hazards. Although you can’t protect the damages in your car’s rims from all the road hazards, you can have peace of mind knowing that if any of them get damaged you can always have them repaired at MrCAP in Dubai.

Tips on Preventing Rim Damage
Today at MrCAP we will be sharing some tips that can help you prevent rim damage and some of the signs you can look for to understand if it is time to visit us.
Try to prevent potholes whenever possible. The force put on the wheels due to the sudden jerk can bend and twist a rim affecting your car’s handling performance. In cases where you cannot avoid potholes then slow down to minimize the damage before hitting the pothole.
Pay extra attention when U-turning or parallel parking to avoid hitting a curb. Lower your curbside mirror when parallel parking, as driving too close to the curb you are risking to scrap your rims.
Use gentle soap when washing your wheels and rims. If you have extra stubborn dirt stuck on your rims it might be tempting to use a ball of steel wool. However, it can leave serious scratches and damage, hence, opt for a soft-bristled brush.
Driving on bent rims
Avoid driving on bent and damaged rims as this will only worsen the problem. If you are looking for quality rim repair services in Dubai, you can always contact us at MrCAP.
Although it is not directly related to rim care, it is still important to check tire pressure, as driving with tires that are too low can impact the rims by the weight of the car and cause significant damage.

- Assessing the damage is the main factor to consider when trying to select whether to get a repair or a replacement. Our rim specialists at MrCAP can assess and advise to extent of the damage.
- Rim repair is much more cost-effective compared to buying a new one. It is surely possible to search on the Internet and find some cheap rims, however, do you trust the quality of those knock-off discounts? Cheap rims found on the Internet might be incredibly heavy, slightly bent, and unsafe. If you do manage to find a quality set of rims, they can end up costing you a fortune, even more than it would cost you to just repair them. Get safe, quality repairs for fraction of the cost at MrCAP.

How to detect when it is time to visit MrCAP?
When you try to brake and your car pulls towards the side, it can be a symptom of a damaged car rim, especially after hitting a pothole at a high speed. This can be most noticeable when you try to halt your car abruptly.
Constant loss of tire pressure can be one of the signs that your bent rim has damaged the wall of the tire. If the damage on the rim wheel is extensive then you may even see a completely flat tire. The reason behind bent rims affecting tire pressure is because rims help seal the air between the wheel and the tire. Therefore, when the rims are bent, that seal is broken.
Quite often when the front tire rims are bent, they show signs in the steering wheel by making the car shaky and causing vibration. Although various other causes can lead to a vibrating car, but if you notice this sign especially at high speeds, it’s best to check if your rims are the problem.
It is the most obvious of all, as you can see such damages on your rims as discoloration, scuffs, bends, changes in wheel alignment, etc. Remember that it is never to your advantage to hold off on getting your damaged rims repaired. In cases of emergency, the contact number of MrCAP should be on your speed dial.
