    It depends on the amount of cleaning and prep you put into them. Which wheels are you planning to paint? What paint are you going to be using? Ect ect... But to clean them and remove and grease or dirt then prep them and apply paint will take more time than just spraying them with paint but you end up with a factory like finish.

    Look up some of the threads containing info about painting the stock wheels I belive there are quite a few people on the forum who have showed step by step on how to paint them the right way...
