After the paint. Unless you only want to see the outline of the decal through the paint.

Put them on over the clear coat so you can strip them off for a clean look.

after you let the paint cure for a week, but before you put the clear coat on.

if you put the decals on after the clear coat, they'll start to peal at the edges after a while.

This also depends on the decals. Most can be cleared over, but some cannot.
