If you are talking spray paint then get the best quality that you possibly can. Something like rustoleum would be good to prevent rusting in the future. Also, make sure that you hit them with a coat or two of primer to give the black paint a good base to stick to.

I used Rustoleum Wheel Paint. So far so good. And it comes in black as well. Definitely sand and prime before painting.

I have some pics of it on my profile.

make sure you clean the wheels really good, then sand them good to remove any old paint. then hit them with a few coats of primer, sand lightly again with a high grit sand paper, then hit them with a good quality spray paint. lots of light coats will do. then a clear coat after if youd like.

Rest in peace Brian "96_XJ" Perrine. You will be missed by all of us. Thank you for all that you have done to help make this a stronger forum.
