fixing user, group, and mtime with rsync?

Hi all.

I prepared a mirror (that is intended to be updated by rsync)
by doing the initial copy using cpio (for efficiency on 15 million files).
Unfortunately, user, group, and mtime of some directories and files
was copied incorrectly.

Can I use rsync (GIT) to fix this?
