Smile Painting stock rims black?

Just bought a 2001 Black XJ all-stock.
No $$$ for new wheels yet so I figured painting rims would be a good first project.
Anyone out there happy/not happy with their stock rims that they've painted?
Pics would be great!
I've heard Duplicolor is the best way to go...
Thanks!!!

clean and sanded with a green scuff pad. with the hammered finish spray you can direct spray right over rust no need to prime unless you want to

I also used jd black but not flat its called blitz. Has a little sheen and they look great totally changed the look of my white 99.
Advise: the better you prepare the better they will last.
Spay even and consistant.
