it's not hard or anything if you have questions ask away.
my wheels were stained I am not sure why, but heaps of cleaning it never got rid of the water stains, and I never liked the colour.
so my cousin helped me with this, he took the wheel off we gave it a clean with soap and water and wiped it down so it's dry and started to mask off the wheel barrel.
gave it a coat of primer that we got from masters, there was only one type and it said it was good for steel and alloy the can costed $7. 1 can was enough for 3 coats for 4 of my wheel centres.
then we gave it 3 coats of this metallic gold colour, at the start it looked really bad.. but the paint completely changed once it was dried up a few hours later
I wanted a matt smooth gold finish but it looked like it was coated in a layer of gold melted cocholate texture, but my cousin who is a pro with rattle can painting said it's fine let it dry up..
i freaked out when it was like this:
but when it all settled down it was like this. it's a flat matt gold, i was happy with the result.

Don't think I have ever seen gold centre Wats.
Job well done.

Do you have full size pics of your whole car somewhere? Looks like a beast!
I have the same wheels as you, they are bare or "raw" alloy which are not painted. Some wheel cleaners can stain that kind of finish, it's what I believe happened to mine, and prob yours too. I've been told just wash them with whatever you wash your car with-mild soap, no "wheel cleaners". So I had mine repainted as well, pics courtesy George:
