Removing Paint Off of Aluminum Wheels

I found a good deal on a set of wheels and tires but the guy painted the wheels. They are polished aluminum but he couldn't get em to clean up all the way so he spray painted them Black. I don't know how they will look on my truck so if I dont like em Id kinda like to strip em. Anybody have any ideas how I can remove the paint without ruining the wheels?

Find some aircraft paint stripper, it is made for aluminum and shouldn't hurt the wheels. You'll need to polish them after you take the paint off, if you don't know of anyone, let me know, I can hook you up with the guy who does most of the tour buses in Nashville.

Good deal. I know I will be spending alot of time getting them cleaned up so I dunno. I just don't think black wheels would look good on a tan truck
