Ok so I have a 2001 Cherokee sport and the stock wheels have started to rust. Is it worth painting them and if so should i just use standard automotive finish on them?

Mine are rusty too. I plan on using rust remover, sanding and then putting better paint on them, hopefully it is just the paint is crappy.

i just sanded mine with a 3M abrasive wheel on a drill and painted them with wheel paint i got from autozone, i think it was duplicolor. mine turned out pretty good.
this is what they looked like when i painted them

these is what they look like now they kind of dulled up

i didnt put a clear coat over it like they recomened they prolly wouldnt of dulled if i did
