The problem with painting wheels and parts is sanding the primers...so wouldnt it make sence to spray a primer that left no texture (orange peel) so you could paint without sanding in between..You would need a primer that stuck well to bare metal and provided some protection against rust and it would also have to be reduced to a paint like viscosity to be used as a sealer.
Epoxy is the only way to go but if the epoxy your using dosent do all this AND build AND sand well then look into SPI epoxy it does it all,so if you have pitts you can fill them then sand then seal and paint ...60.00 for a qt and that should be plenty....
