I think regular old spray paint would suffice so long as you did the normal prep. It's not like they take the rock/dirt/mud abuse like the rims do.

clean with something like simple green, rinse off quickly, let dry... paint with a self-etching primer, then two coats of color. make sure you tape off lugs and center bolt, as well as axle, etc... or just take them off for paint.

do it up right, have them powder coated. IMO, i dont think they will "hold" paint very long and end up looking like sh*t after 3 to 4 good rides.

Correct, This has been tried by a few members already with no success.

He's talking about hubs - not wheels.

I took the time to do the proper prep but the paint still chipped and peeled. Powder coat is the way to go.
