I'm feeling them out still. I have a week before I need to paint them again. I only did primer and two coats before the tires were put on. I knew they would get damaged during the process, so I waited to clear them.

painted some 95 Legacy rims for my friend today, wish i coulda gotten them sandblasted before paint but they came out ok for how bad the surface was. 3 coats of flat black sandable primer and 3 coats of clear. came out kinda cool, just wish they didnt have the imperfections... sall good though, he was happy with them!

my winter set of WRX rims go "under the knife" tomorrow
here's a little teaser of their future

Possibly? If so I may try to touch them up. They are black basecoat and the clear is what make the colors. Kid said he bought the paint from autozone.
