I would have someone else do it. The prep work and stuff is important so the paint will stick. Unless you have painted before then have at it.

Re: Paint rims black

Use plastidip. Works great and last for a long time. A couple coats and all good. Plus it peels right off if you mess up. Like a vinyl wrap.

Go to home depot buy 3 cans to be safe I would say. It is called "plastic dip". Clean the wheel and tape off or cover what you don't want over sprayed and have at it. I would suggest trying it out on something else before starting the wheels do you can see the finished product and test your spray paint ability. Be careful when taking tape of other protectants off as if it's sticking it will peel it. ( just go along the edges with a sharp razor and you should be good)
Oh it's about 6.50 a can.

You can stick playing cards into the bead of your rims to keep paint off the tires.

Looks are opinion based, if it is the stuff in the spray can I told you about that is called plastic dip then it won't mess them up. As a matter of fact you can literally peel it off if you wanted. It creates a matte like rubber coating. Your best bet is find something that you don't care about wipe it clean and spray it. I did mine 3 light coats with about 45 minutes between coats for my rear emblem. Once you are finished with your test you'll know if you want to do the wheels.
If I recall correct mustangchassy or a screen name similar did hers on a gray car. Here is a pic of my rear emblem.

Re: Paint rims black

I Plasti-dipped my stock rims, came out awesome! 2 cans of plasti-dip is all you will need for 3 coats for each wheel. pop out the center cap and spray.

Prep:

wash wheels with soap and water
dry wheels
can either tape off tires or use playing cards around the rim.

here is a few pics

Before:



After:

Are you taking the wheels off or leaving them on to do it?

I have it on my faux cap on the trunk and used it on a company car to subdue a Chevy emblem. So far no peeling and no fading.
