Painting chrome plastic cladding

Has anyone ever painted chrome plastic cladding and had it adhere good? What did you do to make it work? I have a 2012 Ram and it has chrome clading on the wheels and I want to color match them to the truck. I was just going to try scuffing with a scotchbrite then spray with plastic adhesion promoter and then spray base and clear, wondering what the chances of it biting are?
