I dont mind if it takes me 2 weekends to do.
Umm light coats spaced about 5 to 10 mins apart till you cant see the original color on the rim.. should take 2 to 3 light coats.. then 3 more even heavy coats spaced 20 or so.. PD is pretty forgiving but avoid staying in one spot for to long. If you want to add gloss or metallizer then its after your done with the base coats.
Use tape and paper or ive seen people use playing cards to keep it off the tires. You could even just let it go on the tires and peel it off later. Choose your method and should turn out pretty good. Also plenty of videos on Youtube if you need it.
