I'm painting my rims and calipers 2 at a time, but divided by driver and passenger sides, since I have directional wheels that I wanted to rotate. I used Rust-Oleum matte black wheel spray paint and Por 15 brush-on red caliper paint. On this first rim I went without primer to see if I could get away with it. I felt like I had to use more paint than I would have with primer, so the rest will be primered. It'll be interesting to see how they compare over time.
Anyways, I think I'm liking it. The wheel finish is more of what I'd consider a satin than a matte, which is actually what I was hoping for. I haven't clear coated because I don't believe Rust-Oleum makes a matte wheel clearcoat. Plus, damage can be easily repainted in the future with just the paint.
Manual transmissions, wagons, and heavy metal are awesome. Zoom-Zoom \m/
