Question Painting Lugs Black?

Has anybody painted their wheel lugs black? What product should I use in order to paint them satin black and have them not chip?

I powder coated my oem bolts silver for more durability. It cost $20.00 for all them.

Have you had any issues of the powdercoating coming off after repeated times taking your bolts on and off?

No powder is a lot more durable then paint. I haven't taken my wheel off but I doubt they'll be any issues.
