Scuff them up and then paint them with Duplicolor black wheel paint. Make sure they're clean.

FROM YOUR AVATAR, YOU DON'T HAVE CHROME WHEELS! THOSE ARE POLISHED ALUMINUM WITH A CLEARCOAT!

*cough*

Since it is clearcoat you want to paint over, a fine grit (800ish) sandpaper will work well to scuff it up. In my experience, the scuff pads are a bit too coarse on paint, though they do work well on chrome.

Did the old truck have clear coated aluminum wheels? If so, then the Ninja skilz did work, as I said "according to your avatar". BooYah!
