I would figure that caliper brakes would take the paint right off where the pads contact the rim?

Ive thought exactly the same myself, not that i run rim brakes, but have wondered. Ive seen many people with rim brakes that paint their rims and it seems ok. At least in photos. I would guess letting the paint totally cure and harden would be the key.
