Hi guys , i'm going to purchase some rims + tires used ... but his rims aren't shiny at all and it isnt the color i wished, but the price meeted my requirements ... i'm low on budget thats why ...

If Possible, I would not use any paint to change the color... Instead I would try to find a close by business that specialize in Powder Coating. Its Much more Durable and will resist chipping and scratches Many x's more than paint... Not to mention they sand blast them 1st to get all dirts/grime/and original color/luster material so they have a Raw/Clean surface to work off of.
That was going to be my suggestion as well... see how much a place would charge you to powder coat it, you'll be much happier with the results. If you do decide to spray paint, then don't forget to prep the surface, clean it really well and use a low grit sandpaper to make sure it's rough enough to stick...
