If they were mine, I would polish and laquer. Same with the hubs.
Depends if you want to show or ride, I suppose.
Hubs look nice polished then either laquer the ribbed centre part between the spokes, or paint it silver. Both look ok.
It's a pain to keep clean when the spokes are in!
Spokes should be plated, not painted as paint might be hiding rust.

I'm not at all sure the original rim was aluminum. My TS400 had steel rims.
