Painting chrome is very difficult. I looked into it on google before I sold my rims.

It is recommended that you sandblast the chrome completely off the rim before painting.

There is a member on here, blackwatertaco, who painted his chrome rims black. He mentioned that they chip very easily and has to touch them up pretty often.
