Question Painting rims

I was wanting to paint my rims and I was wondering about how long it would take....I only have a 7 hour time frame. Thanks in advance!

forget it then, rushing paint is never a good idea.

you can absolutly can paint them in that time frame, but the paint will not be dry enough to hold up to anything. so when you remount them. you will have finger prints scratches and marks all over the wheel.

Yeah, if you can let them dry overnight at least, that would be best.
