Lightbulb best wheel paint.

hi. all.

just a quick one this what in your opinion is the best paint to use for my
wheels as i am giving them a bit of a refurb before i put them on the car.

not sure what colour yet to paint them to go with my sparkling graphite e90, just tidying up the curbing on the edge at the moment then its time to paint them.

many thanks.
stephen.
