Do I have to sand my wheels?

I am painting my stock alloy wheels black and have done a lot of research. But I've heard from some that they didn't sand and the job turned out okay... Anyone here not sanded, just used acetone, primer, and paint? I have denatured alcohol too....
Thanks

I'd make sure to use a self etching primer

You will never achieve 100% durability without prepping them

I bought all of the stuff to do this. I guess i will start sanding. Anyone used denatured alcohol after sanding as an alternative to acetone? Thanks
