They're painted to begin with. They say that painting plastic requires a number of steps - surface prep should be something like grey Scotch Brite pads, then a grease remover like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B002969BQW/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B002969BQW&linkCode=as2&tag=thesaabnetwork
Then an adhesion promoter like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B000PEPBW8/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B000PEPBW8&linkCode=as2&tag=thesaabnetwork
Or some like plastic primers like this: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0007OWD0Y/ref=as_li_tf_tl?ie=UTF8&camp=1789&creative=9325&creativeASIN=B0007OWD0Y&linkCode=as2&tag=thesaabnetwork
Your primer should have at least 2 coats with sanding in between (I'd say 220 grit).
Then finally a wheel paint, which I think will be more durable. Thin sprayed on coats with sanding in between is superior to thick coats.
