Painting

Hey everyone, I noticed on my stock Limited 18 wheels, that the edges have chipped and lost their luster... can the edges be easily repainted? Anyone done it before?

the biggest issue would be matching a paint to the aluminum. of course if you wanted to paint the entire rim thats easy.

my body shop told me that they can paint just the lip of the wheel... but taking another look at it, it is scuffed up from hitting the curbs...I think it needs to be smoothed and sanded first..
