question about painting part of a wheel

my ZJ has the standard canyon wheels with the grey accents... i just got a wheel from a wrecked ZJ that happened to be a Z package with the silver accent canyons... i'm wondering if anyone has any advice for painting the accents on the spare wheel to match the others

i can live with having one wheel being slightly different but it will bug me a little...

A nice soft paintbrush will allow you to get the paint on without too many visible brushmarks.

Hit up hobby town, or a hobby store and get an air brush for $20. Mask it off

I did mine in that black. Find a spray can that would match. It's really easy to paint after you sand it down. Then put a few layers of clear coat

When I painted my wheels the first time I wanted to paint only the accent areas black. After about half a wheel, 20 mins, and a ugly tape line, I found out its very time consuming. So I just painted them gloss black.

On another note it might be hard to match that color
