Sprayed them liberaly with WD40 and the peel coat came off fairly easily.... gave them a proper prep, prime, 3 layers of basecoat ( extra MBP from the bumper cover repair with a sh!# ton more blue pearl) and 3 coats of clear!

    Wonder how easy it will be to snap in the center caps.

    Did you paint the center caps too? I have seen where others left them silver like the lug nuts. I always liked that clean, simple five-spoke style. They turned out nice.

    Thanks,

    The center caps are all bent and one is missing, I have a couple other sets of Subaru wheels that I will "borrow" until I find some replacements. I do like the simple style with a different color than any I have seen, I don't really care for the 55et that they have but I have a set of 25mm hubcentric spacers that puts them just at the edge of the fender lip. I will see how it looks clearance wise once I get the new RCE wagon spec springs and Tokico D-Spec struts I ordered yesterday mounted up.

    Today I picked up a set of almost new Dunlop Sport Maxx 235/45/17 to put on them once the paint is cured.
