I used sandpaper, or even a file at first, then went to sand paper and finally polish. Had a few knicks on those wheels above but smoothed them out.
This is what I did to a set of wheels I bought here.
I used a stone on the gouges I had, polished them to a shine, and coated them with uv-capable urethane clearcoat inside and out.
This fills all the pores in the metal as well; I've fixed slow leaks on cycle wheels like this.
The nicest part is that brake dust won't stick to them...
