Question 2-part wheels

Hi All, my car has Porsche Sport Design wheels (2001 18) that have oxidation around the outer barrel. It would be a lot easier to repaint them if I separated the 2 pieces but I am wondering if #1 I will need a new gasket and #2 are the bolt heads triplesquare and #3 what retorque value they are and #4 is there a spray bomb match for the center spoke portion (silver). Thanks

Pics of the wheels? I have the Porsche sport classics II wheels, and took them apart to paint. There wasnt a gasket,and my bolts were triple square. Since the sport classic II's were made by bbs I called them up, And the torque value was something like 18 ft lbs, although I don't remember the actual figure.
