Factory 20" rim

I wanna polish my factory rims better than they are now. I'm pretty sure there's some sort of clear coat on them but just wanna confirm. And what chemical should I use to get it off if it was a clear coat on them?

I have used mother's mag and aluminum polish on my wheels with a mother's power ball and they come out shining really well. Then I apply a wheel glaze just to seal the wheels up.

You can use aircraft paint stripper to remove the clear coat. I did it to some mustang wheels one time and they looked better without the clear, just a pain to keep them that way!
