2012 focus rims

hello all, I'm not sure if I'm posting in the right area but I had a question about the rims on my car. I love the look of black rims and I'm wondering if anyone has any tips on how to paint them and what kind of paint to use. Thanks!!

A popular option is to paint your wheels with Plasti-Dip. It's actually a rubberized paint that can be sprayed on. It's goes on flat black and looks really good. The best part is if you don't like it, it's removable (just peel it off). If you want something more durable, think about having them powder coated. Lots of FF members have simply painted their wheels as well. Automotive spray paint works well. It can be clear coated as well for increased color retention and a little extra durability (but still not as good as a good powder coating).
