Default How should I go about painting these casters?

I would like to paint these casters in a matte black. They are going to be installed on a coffee table so they will be rolling around on a rug.
I would be removing the actual wheel from it's base before painting and I'm not to concerned about the base but more so the actual surface of the wheel itself which touches the floor. I am also doing this on a budget so sending them out to be powder coated would not be an option.
The paint would need to be fairly durable, would Tremclad do the job?
The casters seems to have some sort of finish on them already. Any ideas on what steps to take here?

Thank you very much in advance

Krylon flat black aerosol. Rustoleum would work.

Thank you. Should I try to remove the paint from the wheels surface as much as I can? Also should I apply a clear coat once painted?

If you mask the wheel tread before spraying, you shouldn't have a problem. Also, don't forget to mask those Zerk fittings.

Thanks all. So far so good. I primed them, painted them and then used a satin clear coat. They have been curing for 4 days now and theyre hard as a rock.
