Question Painting wiper arms - not sure what to use

I have a 96 Chrysler that is in good shape except I noticed the wiper arms have almost no (black) paint left on them. I was thinking about getting a spray can of black automotive paint but my brother said I need something more heavy duty. He may be right since the paint on the body is still in good shape but the wipers have almost none.

I have some rustoleum black enamel and I have a spray can of black high heat for fireplace screens, outdoor grills etc. Would either of these be a good choice? What else would be better?

Rustoleum would be fine. They do take a lot of abuse but it isn't that big a deal to paint them again. A more expensive automotive enamel might last longer but I don't know that it would.

I think you will happier with the results if you use a flat black finish since it will draw less attention to the wiper arms which are not a high profile item on most cars. I had to paint them on a Supra and first painted them shiney black and then changed. Have a good one. Geo
