repainting wheels

i just bought some steel wheels that were blasted and painted red, years ago, then stored inside.

my problem is they are going on a blue car, and its not christmas time.

they are in very nice shape, and im thinking i just need to clean them off real good and wipe down with laquer thinner or something before i rattle can them satin black.

i know i need to wipe them down with something to make sure all the oils are off so greasy spots wont show through the black(had it happen before).
is laquer thinner the right stuff to prep the wheels?
do i have to sand at all? i really dont want to.
