I'm being a little girl and can't decide what I want to paint my stockers this winter. Shefledthescene was kind enough to do a whole bunch of chops for me and I still can't make up my mind...












C Wentz did these chops...

I just finished my winter wheel painting project. I think it turned out pretty well, I'm satisfied. I'm waiting for the final clear coat to dry before I put them back on the car.




Paint that I used:



Paint used:
(3) Rust-Oleum Metallic - Midnight Black
(3) Rust-Oleum Self Etching Primer
(1) Rust-Oleum High Performance Enamel - Safety Blue
(2) Rust-Oleum High Performance Wheel Clear Coat

More pics when the paint is dry and I get them on

PS- Better pics next time, sorry.

Those are the only stock 16's that fit the '06-'07 WRX 4pot brakes, correct?

Thanks for the info!


Are you sure about the '06-'07 2.5i wheels fitting? A friend told me he tried using them as a winter set but they wouldn't fit...

Really? Or maybe I was sitting at my desk at work and decided to check this thread between projects, saw your poor attempt at posting an image, so I reposted it for you.


But yea, I guess the 5 seconds it took me to reply and put IMG tags on your url was waaaay too long.






The wheels look good by the way.
