Default Painting Alloy Rims?

Howdy ya'll!
Just looking for opinions here, so I have a 95 two door with the tire carrier and a 2/3 red and 1/3 black paint job, and think that painting my allow rims black,as well as the spare, would look quite kickass. Anybody else do this to their alloy wheels and like em?

I am getting some Camaro rims powdercoated black soon, but I have seen a LOT of people just spray paint their stock rims. Doesn't look that bad if it's done well.
They do sell Plastidip in a spray can, too, which you can peel off if you want your original rim color back.

I got some 2012 Camaro SS wheels I am looking to do the same..Already have the proper spacers just looking at tires now..Their the 19"s so the selection of decent priced ones are limited..plus I am studying the proper size tires I will be needing because It will go down a few in the front and probably 4 or so in the rear..

Make sure to use the clear high gloss if you want shiny like mine were

I got powder coated late 80's camaro on mine. Powder coating isn't lasting as long as I would like, but I also bought them used last year. Thinking of giving it a plasti-dip soon to cover the chips.

Aluminium (alloy) wheels may need a special primer, depending on the surface.
Cleaning and eventually sanding for a lasting job.

These are the same rims I'm looking at getting done.

Maybe I will just save some money and Plastidip them....
