Alloy wheels are generally not painted. They are powder coated. This gives a much tougher finish. I have tried touching in the chips etc with silver paint, but it never looks right. Usually there is a layer of white corrosinon on the surface where the coating has been that needs to be cleaned off. You will also need to prime the alloy before you paint it and you need to get a good 'seal' with the original coating otherwise the alloy corrodes and the paint lifts. You can get your wheels refurbished. They grit blast the wheels and powder coat them. I think it costs about £50 per wheel.
