painted wheel ?

i want to get these wheels and have the face painted black but keep the rest polished as well as the bolts my question is whats the best way to do so, just take the wheel apart and paint it, or just mask off the parts that i dont want painted.

You'd be better off powdercoating, but if you insist on paint (which I insist on doing for my rims so I can get them color matched to the rest of the car) than you'll only have to mask off the parts you don't want painted.

yeah i've seen that, can they spray that over a color powdercoat, i thought they powdercoat will only stick to bare metal because of the charge.
