Because I have plenty on hand at all times, I would use plastic automotive body filler.
Or "Bondo" (that's a brand).

But a hobby store would have some modeling filler putty in a small tube that would be easier to work with, and cheaper by far because you only need a small amount.

Good Luck!

Check out the small bolts nails and screws at your local hard ware store. Upholstery tacks, etc. Snip the ends off and glue them in place.

Not sure what you mean by smoothing them out. The outer facing wheel? Like this?
If that is the case, like Milton said, sometimes the right size tack head will fit right in place with some super glue.

I think the smoothing was to fill the tire tread to simulate wear?

I believe that Mustwang is a HW and already has no tread.

And since a "faceless" wheel is almost never seen, that's my guess as to what's what.

If that is what the op wants to do - then an emory board (finger nail file) will take care of tread patterns on the edge of tires and tread depth on the rolling face - very quickly!
