Painting a Rubber Tire

Q. I wish to paint a tire swing (to prevent black hands on the little ones) Any suggestions as to the type of paint I should use?

A. The only thing I can think of is to use two coats of acrylic latex paint, but allow the paint to dry thoroughly before the kids play on the tire. I would hate you to ruin their clothes.
