Next time experiment with a coarser grade of sandpaper it should not take you that long.  And don't press so hard against the tire that you cause the drill motor to labor or tires to smoke.

60 grade was the coarsest I could find and I didn't have it pressed too hard. I think a better drill would solve the problem as this one only has a maximum rpm of 2350.

That should be fast enough perhaps changing the sandpaper more frequently during the sanding process might speed it up or using a better quality of sandpaper.

Hutch try some aluminum oxide sandpaper 80 grit and some aluminum oxide cloth sanding sheets 36 grit. Automotive parts stores should carry this kind of sandpaper.
