Since I recently took up learning how to paint, I wanted to take my old stock rims to black. I know the best way would be to powder coat them but the only time I use these are during the winter so the quality of them isn't real important. Anyone think there would be something special about painting rims?

so far I've painted a m3 spoiler (which I need to apply clear coat to) and my hood which turned out great. So I don't have a ton of experience, but I'm slowly learning...

Just shoot them with a single stage paint and you'll be good to go.
