Place two jack stands under each tire suspension. (Make sure it is the frame)
Remove the front tires
Bring the tires to a hose-accessible area
Rinse off the rims.
Use a sponge and dish soap to scrub the rims.
Take 600 grit sandpaper and lightly sand the rims, even the crevices.
Rinse off once again.
Use masking tape and newspaper to cover the tire, exposing only the rims.
Use a can of HIGH HEAT primer and evenly coat the rims.
Let the rims dry for 30 minutes.
Use a can of your desired color and spray lightly and evenly on the rims.
Let dry for 30 minutes and repeat step 13, then let dry for another 30 and repaint.
Once three coats are on the rims, you can remove the newspaper and tape and let dry until dry to the touch
Put the rims back on carefully and set the car down.
Jack up the rear of the car, remove the rear tires, and repeat steps 4 through 16.
