Theres a good chance that the wheels have been clearcoated.
My first choice is paint brush cleaner. If not strong enough ,use acetone based paint stripper.
Remove the coating.
When your down to bare allow...Neverdull cotton wadding...(use nitrile gloves to keep your hands from turning black)
If there is mild pitting in the alloy...use 1000 grit wet sandpaper....hand worked alloy wheels can be made to look great.
If you want to recoat....clean all polish off with acetone and spray with an airbrush...their pretty cheap and spray very fine.
