First, I would try cleaning them and waxing them. If the paint isn't shot, it may just shine up. I use NXT on my cars, and it makes the black look deep and shiny.
If they are deteriorated, and you decide to paint, don't use flat. You would want a base coat, clear coat at best, or a gloss at least. Lacquer is shiniest, but not very durable. A good paint would be the krylon made for outdoor furniture.
If you want them to loook most like factory, use a satin, or semi-gloss paint.
You can't wax flat, and it will get white or gray on you if you don't wax it (or if you try).
