Since no one actually offered a real solution yet to OP's question...
I used Duplicolor wheel paint on my winter rims (2000 Taurus rims) an went with a gunmetal grey. It took 1 can of paint for 4 wheels and half a can of clear. If you take your time and follow directions it will come out really good. I did mine for the first time ever and it was enough to make the techs at the dealership think I had new rims when I brought my snow tires to be mounted.
So far the paint has held up nicely over the past 2 winters. I only have 2 scratch in the paint where I accidentally hit the rim with a snow shovel that had a metal tip.
The paint was pretty cheap at Advance Auto.

Saw a Tire catch fire from a hot rim once.
'couse that was on the front of an 18 wheeler with a dragging brake - red hot brake BTW.

Thanks for moving it Don.
That's what I thought. I've never heard of wheels getting too hot that the paint would melt, but that's what this kid said so I figured I'd double check.
