Whatever method you use, this will knock all of the loose bits of the flaky finish off and smooth out the edges between bare metal and the finish that still sticks. In my experience, sanding the entire wheel down to bare metal is not necessary, especially if you're not entering the Pebble Beach Concours d'Elegance anytime soon. Make sure you sand in all the little nooks and crannies as well.
