What kind of paint for wheels?

Those of you that have painted their wheels black what paint/primer etc. did you use and how long have the wheels been painted? also how are they holding up and what do you put them through (hardcore offroading, trails, streets, etc.). just trying figure out what paint and primer i should use..thanks in advance

Been posted in more than a few black wheel threads....

I used Duplicolor Sandable Black primer and Duplicolor Satin Black rattle cans. JUST touched them up today after about 12-13 months of regular on street use and moderate off roading.

Had mainly trail pinstripes and a few places on the lip of the rim with paint chips-and I'll attribute all of those to wheeling.
