    Thats going to strip off the clear coat on the rim too. But so will sand paper. I'd take it to a car wash with a high pressure sprayer and try to blast off the spray paint. If the guy didn't prep the wheels before painting them it'll come right off.

    Other than that, chemical stripper or soda blast them. Try to stay away from sand blasting, it'll chew up the aluminum.

    Single mother in a can. Just be sure to clean all of it off when you're done. Then prep the wheels for paint this time.

    that is the way to do it but if you want it painter or anything after that, I recommend sand blasted and then powder coated.
