I just took one off at a time and painted it, then waited about 10 minuets to let it dry. Drying time dependes on the weather. If its bring and shiney with low humidity it doesnt take long at all and vise versa.

I painted my stock rims about a month ago, but i left them flat black. I love them.

I used Duplicolor wheel paint, i got it at Autozone for like $4.50 a can. I also primered them and sanded them.. Took two full days. I wanted it done right. Ill post pics if anyone wants to check them out.

Hey I got your PM sorry I've been off the forum a lot I've been super busy. I would say take a Saturday that you have off, and just go for it all, doing them all at one time makes it a lot easier to just get it done. Start at 8am or something and you'll have them done and dry ready for the car at probably 10pm.
