I actually followed these steps here in the forum http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/suspen...-painting.html
Removed the wheels
Washed the rims, sanded rims, rinsed rims.
Taped off the tire (as to not paint them) and valve stem
Used gloss black spray paint for 2 coats
Used gloss clear coat for two coats (leaving 45min between each coat of each)
Let sit for 2 hours which dried it out completely then put them back onto my car.
Dont forget to armorall the tires and side skirt to make them all look good as well
