well idk the name of them ive been googling like crazy, but they look similar to this, ill ask my dad the next time i see him he can tell me. but this is what they look like kinda...

i used the angled die grinder with roloc discs first(since it was so rough from sandblasting) but i think the grinder wheels would work good if the wheels are somewhat smooth. the hardest part is to not make it look choppy/wavy so you have to be level with the grinding and stuff

there are a few rims that don't look "stock", like the alcolas for example too, I think most people get what I mean by stock
