Due to some curb rash and not wanting to pay to have my stock wheels fixed, I decided to fix/repaint them myself. Since this isn't a thread about the process itself, I won't go into detail. You can search for that in all 42380946 threads about how to do it. This is for picture reference only.

These are my stock 2006 WRX wheels.

-Repainted with Wurth Silver Lacquer.

-Primed with regular primer I had laying around but didn't like it so I bought a can of scratch filler primer which is much thicker and came out great.

-I also used Wurth clear coat which I wasn't too crazy about because it wasn't shiny so I later bought a high gloss clear coat and it came out great. I chose Wurth silver lacquer because it's the closest you will get to the stock color. It will work on many wheels.

This wasn't my last coat of paint but you can see where I had the wheel taped off (around each spoke and around the inner portion of the rim) and how close the paint matches. Once I clear coated it, it was pretty much a perfect match.
