Painting wheels?

I've done the searching on the forum and have found places that paint bodywork. Does anyone know a place on the SE side that paints wheels? I have a set of magnesiums and powder coating seems not to be the way to go due to that. I'm fine with paint (gloss black - like they are now). Thanks for any suggestions (regarding paint...).

Oh, I figured he did more than just PC. Well my uncle owns a paint shop, but it's pretty far south.

The magnesium out gasses and causes bubbling at the powder coating cure temps. There are ways to do it, but I'm not willing to spend the amount of $$ to do what is necessary.

I had a set of wheels painted awhile back at this wheel place by elington air field. The street entrance where the jack n the box is. They are right there on the right hand side. Dropped them off on a thursday and picked them up on friday. These were motorcycle wheels that I had painted gun metal grey and had the lips polished. Hope this helps you some. They came out really great, but sold the bike they were on already.

On the eastside of Dickinson, near the highschool. Corner of Texas Av. and 40th St. It's called Chico's, they've been around for long time, just kind of hidden away.
