Why choose Wheel Collision

Wheel Collision continues to enhance its brand and grow its footprint by offering its services at Tiger Wheel & Tyre and TYRES & MORE® stores.

Wheel Collision, after being acquired by TiAuto in December last year, now enjoys a raised profile that comes with being part of the larger automotive services group. The company also launched its new website this month as well as refined its corporate profile.

Wheel Collision, formed in 2006, has long enjoyed a reputation of being the country’s most trusted specialist wheel repair company. As the only SABS approved wheel repair centre in South Africa, drivers throughout the country have chosen Wheel Collision for their wide variety of trusted services.

This is even more important due to the poor state of South African roads, whereby motorists demand services that are safe, convenient, and affordable for alloy wheels damaged by the country’s many road hazards and potholes.

The company’s offering remains the same. Wheel Collision specializes in the safe repair and refurbishment of alloy wheels and invests in proprietary machinery that restores alloy wheels to Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) specifications.

These services include both full refurbishment and straightening of bent and buckled alloy wheels. This process is offered at a fraction of the cost of replacing the wheel. Cosmetic touch up repairs and colour customisations are also offered enabling customers to personalize their wheels.

The company follows a robust inspection process on wheel damage and uses patented wheel straightening machinery and real-time X-ray technology to guarantee 100%-wheel integrity and safety.

Wheel Collision provides a lifetime warranty on workmanship and a manufacturer’s warranty on paintwork for all refurbished wheels.

Customers can take advantage of Wheel Collision’s superior offering by visiting their stores. Wheel Collision’s Full Refurbishment Branches are located in Johannesburg, Durban, and Cape Town. There are 52 Xpress Rim Repair Branches in partnership with Tiger Wheel & Tyre and TYRES & MORE®. There is also a 24-hour workshop in Johannesburg ensuring a speedy turnaround time. Loan wheel stock is available to keep customers mobile, and this is strategically situated across all branches, including Tiger Wheel & Tyre and TYRES & MORE®.

Need Alloy Wheel Repairs?

Trust the Company Trusted by Leading Retail Brands and Some of South Africa’s Major Insurance Companies

Road safety is always top of mind at this time of year, as drivers take to the roads en masse for the summer holidays, and, as usual, Tiger Wheel & Tyre is using this period of heightened awareness to drive home the message of wheel and tyre safety. This time though, the country’s most trusted wheel and tyre company is encouraging motorists to pay special attention to how they handle the repair and restoration of damaged alloy wheels.

Potholes, poor road conditions, major and even minor accidents can all cause damage to wheels that can in turn affect the vehicle’s suspension, of which wheels are a safety-critical component. So critical in fact, they are the only suspension component to have a minimum standard, known as SANS1158, to which they must be repaired in order to be deemed safe. That’s why Tiger Wheel & Tyre proudly partners exclusively with Wheel Collision™, the only wheel repairer in South Africa to be accredited by the SABS as being compliant with both SANS1158 and SABS ISO 9001 standards.

“We’re not the only reputable company to recognise that Wheel Collision™ is uniquely equipped to provide peerless wheel repairs,” said Candice van den Heever, Group Marketing Manager at Tiger Wheel & Tyre. “Some of the country’s major insurance companies also partner with Wheel Collision™ to ensure their clients’ wheels are repaired and restored to the highest possible safety standards. It makes sense. Wheel repair is not something you can trust to just any panelbeater or leave with a friend whose cousin knows a guy who can fill the crack with body filler. This is serious stuff. We’re talking about a critical, load-bearing safety component that is subjected to tremendous stress and forces in its routine, everyday use. So, if it’s going to be repaired, then it has to be as good as new, nothing less than that is good enough, and we only trust Wheel Collision™ to deliver to those standards.”

Tiger Wheel & Tyre customers benefit from the company’s partnership with Wheel Collision™ in several ways. Wheel straightening can be done on-site at any one of the Wheel Collision™ Xpress Rim Repair Centres located on-site at selected Tiger Wheel & Tyre fitment centres countrywide. All stores, in turn, are equipped to send wheels away to be expertly straightened, polished, powder-coated, or have custom paintwork done.

“Personally, when it comes to my own and my family’s safety, there’s no question that I will always choose to have my wheels repaired by the only facility that is accredited and compliant with SANS1158 rather than somewhere that’s not compliant. It’s that simple.” concluded van den Heever.
