Painting wheels - Which Duplicolor product to use?

Hey, I'm going to be painting my rims gloss black and am curious which paint would be best:

-Duplicolor Wheel Paint (I haven't seen this in black in any local stores)
-Duplicolor Caliper Paint (Found a small supply of black, designed to resist brake dust, seems good for wheel paint)
-Duplicolor Engine Enamel (There is quite a bit of this around)

Opinions? Is there another type that would also work? I painted my grill with Duplicolor and it came out nicely, and a lot of people on this forum seem to use their products and come out with good results. I'd be happy if I could get this done on sat/sun and want to buy the supplies beforehand.

That does look cool but, I'm not going to be without my wheels for any length of time as I only have one vehicle. And I'm doing stock rims so, spending money is an issue.... if I had the money to be doing more elaborate things to my wheels I would just buy brand new aftermarket wheels haha.

Why hold out when you can DIY and it can look good still?

OP, for my matte black wheels I used Montana Gold series paint, but that series is specifically for matte colors. They have a couple other series, one has several gloss colors, including black, though I can't recall which. The paint is kick ***, doesn't drip or anything.

I've used the Duplicolor Wheel Paint on the OEM 18's before. Looks awesome...if you prep the wheels properly.

No I have 18's...

I still don't know what kind of paint to use... that Duplicolor Wheel Paint is Satin black, not gloss, and on the display at Autozone it says "Flat Black" which is NOT what I want... I PMed maxzero who has gloss black painted wheels to see what he used. I'm just wondering if the engine enamel would work just as well.

^^ itll work just as good but trust me use the satin "flat" black paint and just throw a clear coat on them and they'll look good
