Painting wheels

ALright folks, I picked up some for my wheels today. I got Auto Body Master sandable primer and All purpose Enamel- flat black. Anyone have experience with this kind and if it works well?

Thanks

trial and error my friend, trial and error. I painted in a well known body shop around these parts for years. There is NO certain way to apply paint, it s all in what works and what doesn't . Just make sure all your edges and sanded and anywhere the paint needs to adhere. And remmeber when sanding the deeper the scratch the more it i will shrink and eventually show. I clean em, sand em with a 188-220 and then a 300-400, prime, then sand smooth with 600 before applying your color and clear. JMO

Should I get the clear? Or will that give it a glossy look?
