Cosmetic or SMART repairs as they are sometimes called, are repairs to a small to medium section of the wheel. The damage would be minor, and the repair is blended into the undamaged area, leaving your wheel as original as possible.
The original finish is not removed as happens in the Total Refurbishments of powder coated wheels
Do Cosmetic repairs last?
Cosmetic repairs will last, but not as long as a wheel that has had a full refurbishment of the whole wheel.
The reason for this is simple. When a wheel is fully refurbished then the whole wheel is sealed – totally painted then totally lacquered – a completely sealed unit so to speak. With a cosmetic repair the seal has been broken from the damage to the wheel, however well the repair is performed there has still been a break in that original finish on the wheel. That said, at The Wheel Specialist we have developed the systems to give you the best quality Cosmetic repair possible.
Rest assured; because we can do ALL types of finishes and repairs to wheels we will always advise you of the most suitable finish.
