just sand them nicely and scuff them up, then hit them with Duplicolor either wheel paint or engine paint so they hold up to the heat... you can clear coat them too so the paint stay nicer longer. The better you prep, the better your results will be

silver ranger, you may want to look into getting some chrome trim rings to add to the look.
i rocked that look last summer till i found my deer hoof's.
sorry for the small pic my camera was messed up back then.

I actually sprayed my rims black last week. Came out real nice because the original rims were rusty

I really like the idea of painting the wheels black, I actually just bought primer and matte black paint, but am too afraid to start scuffing them haha ! I'm weary about whether to go through with it =/ My truck is yellow and i've always liked the color combo so , I guess we'll see ...
