Painting the RS rims

I did a really good job painting my engine cover and calipers and I'd like to attempt to paint my rims next. I'll likely rattle can on adhesive promoter, primer, engine paint, and maybe clear coat. I'm a real newb to this stuff but reading up on enough threads I feel I can do most mods myself. What kind of prep work should I do on the polished finish on these RS rims. Just sand? Or some kind of liquid to get rid of the finish on these rims. How well would this paint job hold?

I know someones going to say , just pay someone to powdercoat them! But I'm the kinda guy that takes pride and joy in doing these projects with my own two hands, my iPod and some beers!
