Painting stock wheel

Hi all,

My stock wheels have rust around the edges - it's driving me crazy. I would like to grind it out and re-paint.

Does anyone have a process that worked well for them (grint, prime, paint, etc)? Also, what paint type do you prefer?

Yea u can paint them relatively easy. Degrease them real well and sand and paint and clear coat nothing really special. Type of paint not a big concern I would just use good quality paint and clear.
