Default Wheel Paint

Hey guys, I'm considering painting my gunmetal 18" rims. They have quite a bit of curbage on them, so I'd like to sand them down some and then repaint. Does anyone know of any metallic engine/wheel paint that gives a good metallic shine?

Duplicolor wheel paint comes in gunmetal, silver and bronze, which are all metallic. It also comes in black and white (non metallic).

I'm looking for something that gives a really good shine, like the wheel was polished. From what I've seen, the Duplicolor is pretty flat looking compared to what I'm hoping to find. Anyone know of anything else?

If it's from a spray can and it shines like it's polished, the durability factor goes out the window.
