Prep for paint is the same as if you were painting any other part. The wheels are powder coated but you can treat it just the same as paint

Had my wheels painted at a body shop. They claimed that since part of the wheel is exposed aluminum that they needed to use an etching primer. Other than that it was the same as painting anything else....here is a picture.

My local body shop painted and clear coated my wheels. The paint was baked on but not hot enough to ruin the bearings. Black wheels do not show the dust as much as chrome or polished wheels.
