Wheel Question..

I have stock wheels on my 01' WJ Limited, the coating on front two is fading and starting to come off. It's clean and shiny underneath and I was wondering if there's a way to take off the coating without scratching up and causing surface damage to the metal underneath. If there's a way, I want to try to take the coating off because I'm not going to get my Dalar 5's till fall.

Re: Wheel Question..

Aircraft remover, just spray on, wait 5 or so minutes, then scrap off with plastic scraper, one of the few paint removers safe for aluminum.

Re: Wheel Question..
