Affordable Wheelworx puts a new spin on old mags and tyres

Woodstock-based Wheelworx has been celebrated for their excellent service and inexpensive prices.

Wheelworx is a family-run business which refurbishes wheels and repairs tyres, and was founded by Zaki Hendricks - a well-known figure in the Cape Town car performance and racing world.

The company started in 2009 and employs a total of 13 staff members, Hendricks explains.

Wheelworx provides clients with spare wheels, which allows motorists to keep their vehicles while they refurbish the wheels brought in for repair.

Starting out, we realised that a client cannot leave their car here and be without their vehicle.
