I'm having doubts on how well these wheels will hold up. when i moved them closer to put heat on them they banged together a little and it chipped up a few of the wheels right on the edge where a tire machine will run when installing tires :sigh: not sure if there is a way to fix/protect that. time will tell. I am going to set them outside next week in the sun and hopefully that helps too as it is still a little soft, not sure why unless the Rustoleum didn't complete bond with the Nason Clear.

edit: 5/5, clear is finally very hard, cant put a fingernail mark in it, just need to touch up a few areas on the outer lip, not sure how yet

It's like $236. You can order pre-painted. Install yourself, there's a thread on here somewhere about the install.

$249 at Subarugenuineparts.com (and about $18 for shipping, at least to my address, but I am fairly local to them) and $200 for install at Carter Subaru (I was too chicken to drill into my 2 week old car). Mine went on the car yesterday.
