I didn't, actually. Considering the existing condition of these wheels and the fact that I want to get something better eventually, I wasn't about to put in 20 hours of work. I used 80 grit sandpaper and a scuffing pad to make sure I had a nice paintable surface. I did two light coats of primer, then a single light coat of Duplicolor wheel paint, followed by a wet coat. After they dried I hit it with a 2000 grit wet sand, and ta-da! If I were to give any advice, I'd say buy two cans of paint and do 3-4 coats of it. I didn't get as much coverage as I would have liked, but the primer is white, so I DGAF.
