On sheet metal you should use a quality wax/grease remover, followed by a tack rag as a step just before you primer. Don't know what you mean by "hand buff". Going over the sheet metal with 220 will knock down the profile of sandblasting, then wipe down and paint. On sheet metal you might consider using a a couple of coats of filler/primer over the epoxy so you can sand to a smooth finish. Omni 182 or similar. It will cover any small imperfections in the metal that epoxy won't. Makes for a nice finish. I wouldn't wire wheel paint unless my plan was to remove it all or it was on cast. If you haven't power washed the tractor to remove any grease and dirt, I would do that first, then your prep work.
