You can find it at any hardware store. Try Lowes or Home Depot, they are very likely to have it.

I recently did my wheels with 1 can. But it wasn't perfect. I would recommend getting 2 just to make it nice and thick.
For prep, all you have to do is pop off the wheels, clean them with soap and water, and paint. You can mask off the tires. You can paint on them, but it also starts to peel and look bad in time. So i'd get some notecards to sit around the outer ring.
All of this should cost you less than $15

Go to Home Depot first lol. And even if you buy 2 cans, you'll end up having at least half the second can to play with after you dip your wheels.
