    If it is going to be sunny at 55* you shouldnt have a big problem. Just make sure there is very little humidity in the air and a dry fresh breeze.

    You may need to wait longer between coats if its 55º.

    And be sure to let them set for 12 to 24 hrs before you put them back on. I let my wheels set overnight and when I put them on in the morning the paint rubbed off where the lug nuts make contact with the wheel. So, I re-painted the part that came off and let it dry for 24 hrs. This was done in dry 85º weather.
