Paint over chrome

I have an old set of rusty chrome rims that I want to use on a trailer. I would like to paint them after I sand off the rust and peeling chrome. What would be the best primer to use on them? Would a self etching primer work better on the chrome that is left on them. What would work best to keep the top coat from peeling?

Not necessarily, get the rust and flaking chrome off and rough everything else up.
