I went to Advance auto parts and bought a can of VHT's Gloss Black Epoxy paint. It's self priming. did a wheel from the junk yard. it turned out well. It says it rust and salt resistant. I also used it on wiper arms, and a 9c1 sway bar. holding up so far.
It even adheres to plastic.
Good prep and a rattle can are fine. Just watch out for steelies that had trim rings. TR's are great looking, but absolutely destroy the mating surface w/ time and weather exposure.

my paint still looks new, even though the rims are in the back yard now, and only stayed on the car for 25 miles beforehand, I font like them anymore.
These were painted this winter past. Have only been washed once. No prep for the pics. Just walked outside and snapped them:

Front


Rear


Props to RYS's above post, but wanted to add that the old weights and stems should be removed before prep & paint.
