Using a wire wheel to prep for paint?

I am going to paint the rockers on my XJ tomorrow and my buddy said instead of sanding by hand for a couple hours just take a wire wheel to it. Is this actually ok?

It will work just fine. just be sure to use etch primer if you are taking it down to bare metal.

No need to go all the way down, just clean up well with a hand wire brush and use Eastwood's Rust Encapsulator, check out their other rust treatments ( Eastwood Company: Auto Tools, Body Repair, Classic Car Restoration, Paint Guns, Powder Coating, Soda Blasters, Fender Rollers ). ALWAYS use a resperator, it's powerful stuff.
