Knocking down old paint in crevices - there has to be a tool

It's taking me forever to sand within these crevices, is there some sort of sanding tool that can easily get into crevices to sand?
Sort of like a hairbrush with surrounding bristles but the bristles have a certain grit.
Anything come to mind or is there a technique to sand into the sucky design of these wheels?

Are you trying to remove all the paint ?
If you are..... you'll never sand it all off.
You'd need look into sand blasting or chemical stripping.

I only want to scuff it enough to repaint it.

Emery cloth (crocus cloth) is fine grit sand paper on a roll. That may be helpful.
A wire brush in a drill may work.

You could also get a 3m sanding sponge (the thin pads that are 4x6 or so) and cut it into strips.

Good idea. Even the ScotchBrite sponges with the green back will work to scuff the paint.

I'm thinking a fine wire wheel or flapper wheel that attaches to my drill is the best option
