Black Stock Rims?

Has anybody painted their stock cobalt wheels black? Was it hard and what kind of paint works best? Do you have any pictures?

trick is u need to wash them with dish soap and scuff them with fine grit sand paper before u paint them and u will end up re-painting them unless u air gun them with hardener

I kinda want to do this, I'm thinking when the time comes around again for new tires, I'm selling my 18's and getting either steelies, with good tires, or some LT rims and powdercoating them black.

i did.. go to autozone or a place like that and they sell wheel paint.. i took 1000grit sand paper and rubbed up the surface for paint.. painted with the wheel paint and clear coated and they've lasted since august.. haha and through the NY winter so far =)
