You won't need to sand it to a ridiculous finish, just enough to get the paint to stick onto the metal. They'll turn out just fine if you use enough primer/paint. Plus they are your wheels not like people are going to be scrutinizing your wheels, like your interior, because the paint has a somewhat different finish in some spots.
