So what is a diamond cut wheel? This is an alloy wheel which has been put on a lathe and part of or the entire painted surface of the wheel machined off to leave a shiny alloy finish.
A small part of the actual alloy is machined off to create this finish. It is then lacquered over to prevent corrosion. You will be able to see if your wheel is diamond cut if on close inspection you see very fine lines created by the cutting machine and the appearance is very shiny.
This may be harder to distinguish if you wheels are of poor quality, old or corroded.
Not all wheels can be diamond cut as this depends on the profile of the face of the wheel If the diamond cut finish is not suitable, other wheel finishes are available.
