Default Brakes squeak on rims after painting.

I guess this is to serve as a word of warning, and also an inquiry to see if anyone has a solution for this.

I painted my rims and put a clear coat sealant over it. I took the bike out for a ride, and found that the brakes make a VERY loud squeak/shriek when I engage them. They also left a nasty little black ring on my newly painted rims =(. At least the color scheme is black, red, and white, so it sort of fits. Anyway, I'm assuming that once it makes its way through the clear coating, it should be ok, but until then, really annoying =\
