I have done 2 piece BBS wheels and I can't imagine not taking them apart before painting.

I just painted the 17" sport wheels on my 2003 Boxster today. I used "HOT ROD" black matte paint. Really looks great.

The trick is to prep them thoroughly. Clean all the dirt and grease with strong grease cutting detergent. Then use wax and grease remover to clean the surface. Sand with a 400 grit pad.

the HOT ROD paint I used was from a SEM kit from TCP Global. This kit has a Quart of paint, pint of catalyst, and a pint of reducer. I sprayed it with an HVLP spray gun.
