    get some rustoleum black satin spray paint and some black primer. before u start tht though, u have to sand off the rims first. It should be about 10 dollars for all tht

    It will stick. I applied three coats of the spray paint after the primer. It hasnt chipped. And the spraypaint tht i used was just normal paint not automotive
