Any good automotive paint is going to be strong and chip resistant, its the bond to the metal that is the weak link. It's all in the prep work. The method I followed in my thread (rage-wrx posted above) is a proven one that is sure to last.
I have a ton of paint left over from that project, if you're interested in buying some. Can't ship these materials, though. Where are you located?

1. If your going to spend an outrageous amount of money on wheel paint.. Have them powdercoated it's $40 a wheel and if you can't find someone to do it for $40 a wheel call other places.

2. If you don't want to spend $40 per wheel buy krylon fusion. It works great and is ~4 per can.

Pure sex! I really wish I had know Plasma Blue was gonna be a '12 option. I might have ordered it instead of getting the DGM. The DGM is sexy though with the gray wheels. :)

does this add a different tint/shade to the gold paint?
They told a friend to use red primer when he bought his. Don't know why...
