i suggest using plastidip (you can get it from any local home depot) i did mine myself it was very easy you just spray and when it drys it turns into a plastic like material and you can peel it off whenever you want but best way to remove it is to use high pressure water.. <br><img src="http://i861.photobucket.com/albums/ab178/dolllllfacex/Haruts%20Pics/IMAG0110-1.jpg"><br>

you can do simply plastidip or if you want a color thats not blue,red, white, or matte black then what you can do is put a couple coats of plastidip then after spray normal spraypaint over it in which ever color you want. havent done this on rims but ive heard it stays fine

I just Plasti-Dip painted my rims.
Took the stock 16" that came with my car and gave each rim 3 coats.
Came out really great, with that black matte look.

Honestly,,,,don't do it. It's a factory thing and eventually the paint WILL chip.
