I strongly recommend etching/sealing primer first. After that do watcha like. Otherwise they will rust up inside and cause air leaks eventually. I don't think enough people use water traps on their compressors.

I'm a big fan of Hammerite. I've used their grey/black on my bumpers in the past. It is also available in silver and for wheels I would get the Smooth finish rather than the Hammered finish.

If you paint them think about at least sangding them down. I would use a 220 grit at least and finish it off with some 320 grit paper and then bomb can away.
