painting aluminum rims black?

How do you properly paint aluminum rims black so that the paint last and doesnt peel. What paint should i buy? I want a black glossy look for my american racing outlaw 2 wheels. Your help is greatly appreciated. Any pics of your wheels and paint that you used would be great

Here are a few pics of my stock Gamblers. I used red scothcbrite to rough them up. Then painted them with Satin Black Fusion. Then cleared them with Duplicolor Wheel Clear. They have only been done about a month but have been wheeled 2x, driven in the rain and daily driven with about 70 miles a day.

I have aluminum american racing rims, and painted them black. I sanded down with a more grittier paper then less course paper. Used light grey primer, then 2 coats of gloss black rustoleum. No scuffs yet.

Dont have any side shots or close ups so these are the best i have. overall, very happy with how they came out.
