That's just not true. Most people are capable of a professional quality paint job with some education, practice, and time

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.
