How to maintain spray painted wheels?
To Clean- very durable paint however, tends to accumulate more grime and brake dust as it has no additional protection and has somewhat of a rougher or porous finish to its cousins Satin, and Gloss.
To Repair- between the 3 options Matte finish requires the least amount of drama surrounding a scratch. If you are hands on savvy, you may even give it a D.I.Y weekend attempt.
To Clean- This finish steers more to the look of Matte than it does to Gloss however, it has a smoother finish to Matte allowing for easier maintenance due to the smoother texture wading off excess brake dust etc.
To Repair- Once again, like its cousin matte finish, satin requires no clear coat which allows for much easier scratch repairs than your gloss finish.
To Clean- This is most popular as it offers easy maintenance and has a tendency to look clean even if it’s missed a couple of bubble baths. The Clear Coat finish offers a very smooth, shiny surface that assists in avoiding buildup of brake dust etc.
To Repair- Gloss is often considered the prettiest and we know how that goes. Mainly due to the clear coat finish this option requires some expertise when it comes to dealing with a scratched wheel. (refer to the section of this guide “ Where to have your wheels repaired.”
