Denver Mile High Wheels: Damaging Events


December 13, 2021

While some individuals may be more particular about their automobile than others, no one likes when their car’s exterior incurs dings, dents, or scratches. These imperfections, however minor, are obviously bothersome to the cosmetic appeal of an automobile but when they occur to your wheels, it can be both aesthetically unappealing and dangerous. Doing your best to avoid situations and events which could cause damage to your wheels is key to not only keeping your car looking its best but also safely operating on the road.

Dangerous bent rims can cause your vehicle to handle awkwardly and may even impact your ability to stop when needed. Brake impacts, tire pressure, and other issues are commonly the result when suffering a bent rim. Fortunately, many of the situations that may cause damage to your wheels are often avoidable scenarios.

Potholes

Potholes are not only a visible nuisance on the roadway but they can also be extremely damaging to your vehicle. Depending on the depth, size, and angles of a hole the impact could easily bend a wheel and put your driving in jeopardy.

Curbing

Neighborhood and city driving, along with parallel parking attempts can all lead to curbing potentially causing damage to your wheels. From scrapes and scratches to bent or broken wheels, running into the curb is another danger for your vehicle’s rims.

Air Pressure

Improper air pressure or continuing to drive on a flat tire may also lead to wheel damage. In the event damage does occur, the tire air pressure could be further impacted if the seal is not in line between the tire and rim.

Accidents

Car wrecks are another situation which may also cause major wheel damage. Depending on the speed and location of impact, rims may be susceptible to being scratched, bent, broken, or even removed entirely.

Ice Slicer & Liquid Deicer

Another outside factor which has the potential to cause an issue, if left unattended, is the continued buildup of salt and other deicing materials used on roadways and bridges prior to and during inclement winter weather. A good wash to remove any build up can significantly help your vehicle but if left alone these items may be corrosive to your wheels.
