    As long as you don't have any clear on them you should be fine.

    I sprayed my wheels already, I just want to respray the spots that chipped off from chemicals. Do I still need primer?

    if you rough up the clear you can respray over the clear without primer. Use 220 to feather your scratches (make them smooth) and 400 over the rest of the wheel and paint

    I would completely redo your wheels without using clearcoat, that way you can just respray chips/scratches without having to sand everytime.
