Fresh Wheel Refurb how long before i protect?

Car has one of its wheel in for a refurb with the wheel specialist advised by my local BMW dealer as they couldnt match the paint colour.

If it's powder, you can coat straight away, if it's paint, you're meant to leave it a few weeks for the paint to gas out

Yeah I'm not sure what paint they'll be using may have to contact them directly but I thought it would a couple of weeks as it's an oem m235i wheel
