Spray painting wheels?

Hey guys, so I got my wheels sand blasted down to bare alum.

I was thinking of just using a simple glossy silver paint to make them look "nice". I don't want to spend a lot of $$ on them since I got them for so little.

What have you guys used that's held up to road grime, brake dust, etc.??

Something in a rattle spray can would be great, so if they ever get scratched or something I could just touch it up on the car.

On my wheels right now from the previos owner are painted with what appears to be just some gloss black paint. Its on pretty thick tho (Runs on a few spots) but it hasnt chipped yet or wore off.:shrug:
Good to know, I found that Duplicolor actually makes a wheel paint that's supposed to hold up to brake dust and the elements, so I'll try that. go with silver or a gunmetal flake, hmmmm =)
Silver spray paint never looks good, no matter the company.

Id go with gunmetal, personally.
Will keep that in mind...thanks man.
I used Dupli-Color High Performance Wheel Coating Color (Graphite) and primer more than happy. :)
People seem to favor the graphite for sure, I'm just not sure it'd look as good on the wheel that I have.

BBS VZ Bright Silver Paint

But I'll definitely be painting them =)
