Default DIY wheel painting (black)??

I bought a new set of alloy 13s for my Civic. Stayed with 13s because the sheer purchase of this car is MPG. Didn't want to mess that up. I pick the wheels up tomorrow and plan to sand them with 180 grade paper and then paint them black. Not sure if gloss or flat yet.

I am going to use the Duplicolor paint. They have wheel paint and engine paint. I have seen both used on wheels on the web. Any suggestions on which is more durable?
