Clean them thuroughly, let dry or dry them off. Mask areas you don't want painted, then spray on 3 coats of Duplicolor Adhesion Promotor. I used Rust Oleum Gloss Black and let them sit drying for about a week since that stuff always takes forever to fully dry. It matches the powdercoat black wheels perfectly.
