I do not know about blasting them prior to painting but I have seen more than a few sets of Nissan wheels painted black. Years ago there was a guy with a Frontier that did his four-spokes in black. Alternatively, now Rustoleum has a spray-rubber that you can paint your wheels with. If you don't like the color, you just peel it off!
