As painted aluminum wheels age, they can start to look dingy and chipped if they are not properly cared for, requiring that they be either repainted or refinished if they are to look their best. Stripping the paint from aluminum wheels is relatively easy, though it does require strong chemicals. Remove the tires.

Forgot your password? Asked by 03Ap1. So pretty much as the title states I want to remove black spray paint from painted wheels. It was done by the previous owner by rattle can regular spray pain in a can I want to do this without compromising the alloy finish and hopefully by doing it myself.
Paint is the enemy of chrome. Perhaps some over spray from a paint job has ended up on your chrome wheels. Or maybe you purchased a used set of wheels that someone had spray painted and you want to reveal the chrome underneath.

I have some GTA basketweave wheels that I'm refinishing see polishing thread. I read on here about all kinds of paint strippers, what works, what doesn't. I tried the yellow heavy duty easy-off oven cleaner.
I have a set of painted motorcycle rims that I want to polish but, it seems that the paint on the rims is very difficult to get off. I have tried airplane stripper and other such items but to no avail, I also tried to sand them which works but is a long and tedious process. Is there some sort of chemical that I can use to get this paint off. I ran into the same problem with my rims and tried the same strippers, and sanding would take a life time for all of them.
