It's preety easy and straight forward. Make sure you clean them well and shake the can for a few minutes. Also try not to hold the can downwards while spraying too long because it can drip onto the rim and you will be left with a big dip drop lol.

Easy as it seems lol.. But there's just a few tips.
1: clean rims of any dirt/oil
2: remove the rims
3: cover what you don't want sprayed
4: spray light coats and let 10min in between coats. Unless you use a hair dryer to dry it faster
5: 4 coats is plenty
