I assume that you mean wheels, not rims.

You can plasticoat them

You can use 2 part acrylic enamel. If they need work remove the damage and prime the wheels first.

You could also have them powder coated.

I personally like painting them.

Or you could vinyl wrap them. Vids on Utube.

Here is my before and after. I had a local wheel shop separate the rims, polish the outer ring and powder coat the spokes. I later added the emblems back in the center. Worth inquiring about powder coating them.
