Just picked up some used rims from a fellow SCMC member.
Who knows anything about painting rims. The rims will see
some limited autocross and open track time so heat will
be a factor. All info. appreciated.

I painted mine flat black. Sandpaper, primer and paint.

What type of Flat Black paint did you use. High Heat? Paint for Wheels?
or other? I'm assuming the wheels were originally argent silver paint with clear coat?

p.s. Nice Ride

They were 95 R silver wheels. I think any good flat black would work. Yes it WAS my nice ride.

If I did it again I would clearcoat over the flat black. Give all coats plenty of time to dry.
