Have you put new clear coat on polished rims?

Question

I have a TBSS and the polished wheels have the clear coat cracking. Wheels are physically in good shape, just not cosmetically. I’d like to strip the clear coat, polish and then put new clear coat on. Have you done this? I’m not looking for show quality results as these are my winter wheels, but I know they can look better than this.

I have stripped,sanded and polished a set of factory aluminum wheels in the past. Never re-cleared them as the car they are on never sees bad weather.

 

I used aircraft stripper on them. I had to do it a few times to each wheel (80's dodge wheels) 

Take your time and use the stripper in a well ventilated area. Best thing would to remove the tires also, no telling what the stripper would do to the tires.
