Painting Stock Wheels

Have any of you painted the stock alluminum wheels? If so what did you use. I saw Rustoleum has a special wheel paint I wonder if its any good

Honestly I used VHT black spray paint with the wheel paint clearcoat. I purchased it all from advance auto. I sanded the wheels first the cleaned them with water and rubbing alcohol. I then put 3 light coats of VHT. You have to make sure it is absolutely dry! Then I put 3 - 4 coats of the clear on giving it an amazing finish and a great looking wheel! Now I did although have to repeat this process the fallowing year do to wheeling and everyday winter abuse. Unfortunately I do not have any pictures of them.
