Painting wheel backs

I've just bought a set of cheap alloys with winter tyres which have big areas on the back of 2 which are blistering, they look as though if i touch them it'll flake off.
I'm not bothered about them looking as new but was wondering what i can do to make them look "better" - do i just scrape the paint off and sand down the area and apply wheel paint or should i prime first?
The backs are a matt silver/ grey (Audi alloys) so i don't need them shiney so guess i wont need to lacquer?

Thanks

If it's just a quick tidy up then yes, you can sand out the corrosion and feather out the edges, a decent wheel paint will cover it fine. Ideally you would etch prime, paint, lacquer. But a can of wheel silver is a quick easy solution for a reasonable finish.
