HOW MUCH ARE OLD ALLOY WHEELS WORTH?
Alloy wheel prices depend on a few factors. Firstly, if your wheels have tyres, the value is considerably lower. This is because the buyer will need to remove the tyres themselves and pay to dispose them responsibly.
Secondly, the weight. Larger wheels doesn’t always mean they are heavier than smaller ones.
Thirdly, if you’ll deliver or need collection. You’ll normally be paid more if you deliver your alloy wheels.
WHO CAN SCRAP ALLOY WHEELS?
Everyone. If you have a set of old rims you don’t want anymore and feel like cashing in, we’ll try and get you the best rates. Mechanics and accident repair garages can often acquire damaged alloys which they can sell. Mobile scrap collectors and scrap dealers can also use our price finder to locate the best rates for re-sale. Car breakers can benefit significantly because of the quantities of wheels they produce.
GETTING PAID FOR RECYCLING ALLOYS
You’ll normally be paid by sameday Bank Transfer. Make sure you keep your receipt or ticket. Payments onto your bank card or cheques may be available at some locations. If your scrap alloy wheels are being collected, make sure you get paid before the buyer leaves with your goods.

ARE ALLOY WHEELS MAGNETIC?
No. Alloy wheels are not magnetic. Alloys are classed as Non Ferrous Metal. If a magnet sticks to your wheels, they are most likely steel and not aluminium.
‘CLEAN’ ALLOYS ARE MORE VALUABLE
Don’t worry. This doesn’t mean you need to start scrubbing your used wheels. Clean alloys means that there are NO TYRES. Many scrapyards will also ask for valves & balancing weights to be removed. However, not all buyers. “Dirty” alloy wheels contain these “contaminants” so are less desirable, which adversely affects the value.
WHO BUYS SCRAP ALLOY WHEELS?
Simply fill out the form with your basic information. It will be sent to every member in our network who buy or recycle alloy wheels in your area. These could be scrapyards and mobile collectors.
DELIVERING SCRAP ALLOY WHEELS
If you have a small quantity of alloys, many buyers won’t collect due to the cost of fuel, time & manpower involved. Your best bet would be to deliver your goods to a licenced site. You’ll most often be paid a higher rate too. Your alloys will often be weighed in front of you so you can see the weight for yourself.
But if collection is required, we do have members who can help you too.
