Hardest part is going to be removing the existing clear/paint on the inside of hte spokes. If you can protect the lips, could have the center sand blasted. Painting them won't be too hard, just cover the lips/bolts.

It would be somewhat difficult just because there are so many little spokes/pockets for the paint that's on them. It's definitely doable if you have the patience though.

I'd carry them to a paint shop so they can do it proper.
