If the centers are cast you can't sand it. You are supposed to apply coats about 10-15 minutes apart. If the wheels are steel, I would sand it off and use 2 coats of epoxy primer. An expert can get by with one, which I am not. If you insist on using the CNH primer, follow the instructions that CNH gives, and if you are outside the window, sand it good first. You do not sand any available paint between coats except acrylic lacquer which I don't recommend to anyone.

I should have said that you can sand primer if it is designed to be sandable, some are not -- I was referring to topcoats above. However I would not sand primer after every coat, I would treat it like I do a surfacer which is used to give a smooth surface, in which case I put on 3 coats then sand, then put on 3 more coats if necessary and sand again. True epoxy primer is not really sandable except for removing a small mistake if you are lucky. The best treatment for sheet metal is epoxy primer followed by sandable surfacer -- surfacer will go on rough but that is ok because it is supposed to be sanded. In any case you do not do only one coat and then wait, they are all put on within a few minutes, 5-15 minutes unless it is very cold.
