Default Gold Wheel Paint

I want to paint my wheels gold (set of '99 alloys). I think it will look like sex on my black NA. Question for those of you who painted your wheels gold (I've seen a few searching around), what kind (brand) of paint did you use and how well has it held up over time? The only wheels paint I've managed to find has been bronze which will work, but it's not really what I'm after.

the dupount stuff looks good cause of all the flake, coupled with the clear it's held up surprisingly well. Any paint will probably work, just prep the surface good, use a paint for metal and youd should be fine.

yeah that's the brand, the ones in my FAQ..

I prepped the surface really good down the to bare aluminum, actually considered polishing them. It held up great. I ve redid them in the gunmetal color. Chipped a bit only because I only did one coat of paint and clear, and because im wild with my impact wrench.
