Painting Wheels, Advice Needed (Polished Aluminum)

Hey TW,

Been a while since I've done a mod, and I am looking to paint my wheels. I have Polished Aluminum 16" aftermarket wheels. I am looking to paint them black, while leaving the outer rim, lugs, and center piece silver(untouched).

How should I got about doing this, any advice will be killer.

Thanks guys, once I start I will document the entire process with pics up at my Composite shop.

Here is a pic as they sit today-
