simple.

use some 120 to knock down the rust. then follow up with some 320 to get rid of the coarse sanding marks.

then scruff the whole wheel with a red Scotchbrite pad. clean with all the usual prep stuff for painting.

Priming helps out a lot on wheels the paint holds up much better than if u just paint it. I used 60 grit and then 120 grit and finally some 300 grit to smooth it out. I used red primer just so you know you have enough paint on top.
