If you have the part of the wheel painted with quality automotive
paint, not just something from a spray can then the finish should
last a very long time. The wheel should be prepped for paint
just like a car body with the exception that the aluminum will
require slightly different prep work than steel does. It is possible
for a good automotive paint shop to pump several spray cans
full of quality automotive paint and then you could spray it yourself.
