I recommend against painting wheels. It requires a lot of continuing maintenance to keep them looking good after driving takes its toll on the paint.

unless you have the tires taken off the rims, cleaned and prepped and either powder coated or painted with a 2 part automotive urethane paint, if you plan on using a spray paint from a can from the local parts store you will not be happy!

Krylon.

And, if it becomes distressed, just paint again.

Many colors. I like sunset red.

just paint them with water colors, and when you get tired of the color you can wash it off, or when it rains
