a picture of the wheel would be really helpful. But I can say that you should start with 220ish sandpaper. Then when it is almost all off sand it all down with 400. Then spray some duplicolor clear performance wheel coating. 1 can can do all 4 wheels and costs like 8 bucks. The sanding could take a while though. Expect 2-6 hours of sanding.
