I have a 2005 impala base and i got it used a couple months ago and the hubcaps on the passenger side are all beat up... I'm assuming because of someone who sucks at parallel parking... Is there anyway to paint them without it just chipping off? I was thinking I would need to sand them down then prime it then paint them or something... any suggestions?

yep they can be painted. just be sure to do a fantastic prep job and finish off the paint with plenty of clear.

If they are plastic,
then I'd use Krylon Fusion
and do some really good prep.

Just my .02
alright thanks guys...

and I looked up the Krylon Fusion paint and it says no prep or priming is needed so what should I do about that?

And it says fully chip resistant after 7 days... so should i paint them then put them on a week later?

i never do any painting without prep. especially on something like hubcaps that are going to take a beating everyday, you are still going to want to prep.
