Based on a couple of rebuilds and hands-on stuff - definitely not something I would do.

I would bet the smoke has a lot to do with this, perhaps one bit of internet advice that makes sense but is probably not 100% correct would be:
"smoke will go away when the rings are seated"

But IMO re-ringing old pistons is a mistake.
I'll start a new thread on this to see -
