I think I'm just gonna take the loss and go for some kind of paint myself. Even with tax money I don't want to put out $500+ on 4 rims
i went to pepboys and got duplicolor primer in black, then got high performance wheel coating in black, then duplicolor glossy clearcoat. Make sure when you buy them you read the back of the can beacuse duplicolor makes paints for tons of surfaces, you need to make sure the one you buy is compatible with alimunuim. In terms of cleaning and sanding, any alimunium wheel cleaner will do...sandpaper go with multiple different levels and use whichever is most effective on your wheel. I will post pictures tomorrow ofthe cans, cleaner and sandpaper i used.

Re: Black wheel coating?

Another question, is it ok to sandpaper the stock aluminum rims? Is it necessary? What does sandpapering metal do?

Yes, Its perfectly fine sanding the aluminum rims. Is It Necessary? No it is not but for the best result I would recommend it. Otherwise your rims will not look smooth and clean after the paint drys. In terms of what it does, It just helps break down some of the gunk and dirt that your brakes put onto your rims along with normal wear and tear from dirty roads that the cleaner is unable to pull up. After you sand the rims they will look extremely clean but look 'dull', Which is exactly what you want before you start to paint.

So I did more research and I'm going with plastidip. I found black and then glossifier and I'm in love. Hoping it'll turn out good and save me a ton instead of buying rims!!

Oh really quick, anyone know how it stands up to car wash, rain, and other weather? It peels off really easily, will it do that in the car wash or first rain after I put it on and have me regret using it?

I used plasti dip. 5 months later it's peeling pretty bad but only on one rim(the first rim I experimented with). Gonna peel and respray again.
