Diamond Cutting / Polished Wheels
More and more wheels are now diamond cut. It is easy to identify if your wheels are diamond cut, the way to tell is if the faces of the wheels are very shiny- almost like the back of a CD. You can also see grain lines in the metal- this is where they have been turned on the lathe. They also have painted inserts; these can be any colour, usually black, silver or anthracite. This process is done before the lacquer is applied the the wheel.

To diamond cut we use a specialised wheel turning lathe and computerised profile capturing. This state of the art method allows us precise control over the finished cut of the wheel and enables us to cut wheels that many other companies will not attempt.

To refurbish a diamond cut wheel, we require your wheels for around 7 days.

About Diamond Cutting:
  • Diamond cutting is a process where after the wheel has been painted it is then put on a lathe and part or all of the surface of the wheel machined to leave a shiny alloy finish. It is then lacquered over to prevent corrosion.
  • Diamond cut wheels will not retain their finish as well as a painted wheel, any damage to the lacquer will allow water to seep into the wheels and damage the diamond cut surface leaving milky patches on the wheel.
  • My wheels have been diamond cut before, can it be done again? The answer is maybe, every time the wheel is machined metal is removed, if we believe that machining the wheel again will leave the wheel weakened we will not undertake the task.
  • Not all wheels can be diamond cut - it all depends on the profile of the face of the wheel
  • The diamond cutting process takes approximately 5 working days possibly longer if you have an unusual wheel that we have not done before. This is because of the time needed to set up the lathe and for this reason single wheels can incur a much higher price when compared to a full set of four.
  • WheelFX's diamond cut wheels comes with a limited warranty.
