2004 Forester XT
Java Black


I know its a Forester but I painted my wheels also. They are the stock Forester XT wheels.
I used Rust-oleum Metallics night black. This paint is black with a highly reflective metallic finish. I used no clearcoat on them and they are doing well with no chips. I followed the basic procedure of scouring with course scotchbrite pads. Then I cleaned each wheel with degreaser and allowed them to dry. I did not mask the tires because they were covered with multiple layers of tire dressing which kept the paint from sticking to the tire.
