I would Recomend VHT Caliper paint, it goes on better than VHT engine enamel and is more heat and solvent resistent.

Its pretty easy to come by, most auto shops should sell it. I'm pretty sure you don't need to prime it even on alloy. I'd just give it a light sand then paint it. It comes in a pressure pack. I guess the correct think to use would be engine enamel, I just think the caliper paint gives a better finish and is more heat resistant (seems to have more pigment too).
