My BF painted some Legacy GT Wheels for our RS this past winter, and they look great still! He plans on painting his 17's this summer as well to touch them up. IF you know what you are doing, its not that hard as long as you use the right paint and coatings. Time consuming though.

Use duplicolor wheel paint then the clear coat from duplicolor.

the trick is in the prep work.

good prep work = good results!

Search for jetguy He painted the spoke part black and left the rim. You could even polish the rim to buff out any damage you did to it. Looks really good.

I painted mine with Duplicolor Trim paint. It's more a matte finish so it looks nice.



As for the durability. Who cares? I still have paint left in the cans.
