If you want a quick result and make the wheels look better from a few feet and avoid spending the cash, you could invest in a large pot of smooth black Hammerite and a couple of brushes, plus masking tape for tyre edge and valve.
Wouldn't hurt. Only be a temp job, but would look a lot better :)

Personally, I'd forget the bare metal finish. Look fine until a few spots of rain. Be wasting your time.

As they are early rims , why not get them blasted / powdercoated / painted , if circumstances allow ..?? They are an appreciating asset , after all ... !!
