I just had some trailer wheels powder coated in silver and noticed the same thing. I might try the caulk idea on them.

In any case I think the powder coat will be more durable than any kind of spray paint.

Figured Id give this a try.

Before and after photos shown below.

Ill throw a tire on there and we will commence with the durability portion of the testing.

Re: Steel Wheel Paint

Turned out nice! Cautionary note... some of the bus repairs I do include using color coordinated bright yellow caulking that the bus dealer sells. It does fade worse than the bus paint and discolor over the years. As an alternate solution, perhaps after epoxy primer one could use seam sealer (2 part) to fill the crack and then paint over top... less chance of discoloration when your paint/clear is the outer coating.
