Diamond cut alloys have a different appearance to the more conventional painted alloy wheel. This is often described as a high shine finish, upon close inspection, that resembles the finish of a CD. When you look very closely you can see very fine groves, just like a CD, and this provides a highly shiny finish to the alloy wheel.
As part of the finishing process the alloys are machine lathe to cut a further edge into the alloy. This leaves the very faint grooved effect that gives rise to the high shine finish. This would be a machined alloy wheel repair, and obviously may cost significantly more than a standard painted alloy to refurbish.
This is simply down to the fact that the repair may require a lathe refinish, and also as these repairs cannot always be done to the same wheel a number of times, the alloy may also need to be examined for signed of internal damage and cracking. For these reasons not all mobile repairers will be able to attempt a repair to a diamond or laser cut alloy wheel.
All repairs must be done by a specialist refinisher who has the correct equipment to ensure the alloy is returned to its original condition, and is safe to be used on the vehicle again.
It can be assumed that 'prestige' manufactures such as Mercedes Benz and BMW are the places to expect diamond cut alloys on a new car, and this is certainly the case on many models. However, even the more mainstream manufacturers such as Volkswagen, Ford, Nissan, Peugeot etc also feature diamond and laser cut finished alloys these days.
