Default Painting rim questions

So i got some Rota G-Force gold 17x8 and i got a stoptech big brake kit. The rim barely clears the brake caliper. My question is: If i paint my rim will the heat produced by the brakes (under daily driving conditions) deteriorate the paint quicker or how long should i expect the paint to last on them?
Thanks

no just use wheel paint or engine enamel. i recommend engine enamel (alot better than wheel paint and withstands big temperatures)
