You can either use paint stripper to get all the paint off (big job/ better results but is pain in the ass) or you can sand off what you can and do a couple coats of filler primer, sand and paint. The filler primer is like bondo in a can.

Yes doesn't work at all. Took me two days to strip the wheels using aircraft stripper and power washer and they are still not perfect .

I assume you bought them to put them on, so Rock 'em!!!
If you dont like the look take them off and swap or sell them.
Either way I think it would be a sweet looking setup and pretty unique. But you got to go with your gut and do what you want dont let anyone tell you otherwise.
