i think that "powdercoating" would be best process for that application.. find someone who does it in your area and get an estimate..

And get a warranty on the work. Too many times I have seen crappy powercoats that chip off way too easy.

They sell rim spray at autozone or your local equivalent. Its about 6 bucks and works great sand the rim down throw some black primer and pray away. Its heat tempered paint so it wont flake off when the rim gets hot. I used it when I had a track car and never chipped.

Get them powdercoated... probably cost you $400-600 to get blasted and coated properly..

Spray painted wheels will look like spray painted wheels
Powdercoated wheels (done properly) will look factory.

stuey is right. You can get them bead blasted with plastic and then the powdercoat should last really well.

Scott - Wions Powder Coating in Sacramento did a great job on a set of wheels. I had a set of one lug wheels that I loved so much I used on two cars. The wheels were used in silver on my first Audi and black on the second one. Even after curbing one they were able to repair it.
