    clean all the road grease and brake dust off.
    180 grit then prime
    then sand with 300
    at least two coats three would be better
    really want a shine wet sand with 1200, but they are wheels so i don't see it as worth the time.

    duplicolor makes wheel paint in a spray can. it worked pretty good for me on a set of hx wheels. it comes in three colors, black, silver, and bronze. and you can pick it up at a local autozone or advance. good luck!
