Just use the same paint that you used on the car..Just in black is all..You can use either a single stage or BC/CC but actually I think I woudl just take them to the powder coater..I do not think they would be all that much for 4 wheels..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

I'd opt for single stage urethane with a urethane clearcoat.
(If I were painting them)
That urethane is pretty tuff stuff

Sandblast, epoxy prime, seal any open seams with a thin application of quality seam sealer, paint with a urethane single stage black. It will last for many years.
