On mine I just cleaned most of the of my original steel wheels, wire brushed them to get rid of small rust spots, and really baked on . I then cleaned them again, and degreased them, before giving them three coats of hammerite satin black paint, applied with a brush. Leave to dry, and whack them on the van, and they look great! You can spot the brush marks if you get up close and personal with them, but being black, when you get about 3 feet away, it all disappears anyway!

Going to be doing this with mine

Was thinking of powdercoating

But a clean up with fine sand paper and 2 or 3 coats of spray paint will sort them out
