painting steel wheels...vote on paint

these are actually the wheels on my quad, but they are silver and in need of help, so I am gonna fix them up (haha ie bend them a little) and paint them black.
so here's my question.... Which would be the most durable
1) duplicolor wheel paint
2) rustoleum high performance enamel (the kind in the silver can)
3) caliper paint

I though about bed liner, but too expensive and too heavy for my little suspension...

If you have any other suggestions, I'm all ears.
Thanks
