White road paint on aluminum wheels

Any tips on the best way to remove white road paint from aluminum trailer wheels?

Here's some links to pics. By the way, the wheels are clean:

I'm not sure if these wheels are clear coated, so am concerned about using paint stripper. I can't get it off with my finger nail, and it just looks dirty all the time. Drives me nuts!

Thanks for any help or suggestions.

Frank

EZ-OFF oven cleaner has been used successfully on painted surfaces to get road paint off cars - just do not let it sit on it for long.

If you have clearcoat on those wheels, using some of these cleaners and solvents can remove it. The good news is, it's available and easily applied with a spray can. Acetone will do a good job, but once again, clearcoat will be gone with the paint. Just be prepared to finish the cleaning job with a couple of layers of clearcoat.

Providing that you just drove through it after the spray truck had just passed...
use waterless hand cleaner, it will remove the paint and not harm the wheel.
Road paint has a pretty hot thinner so it could be a problem if it was sprayed directly on at close range.

Those rims look clear coated. Use a detailers best friend. A clay bar kit.
