Use kean stripper to take off spray paint on wheels

I spray painted my oems to black and now wanna take off the paint. Searched and found a spray called klean stripper. Does it really work and will it even take off the original paint of the wheels?

Why would you have done that Hmmmmm

well ... I recommend you take off one wheel, then clean it and spray a section on the back side. Let it dry then use the stripper to see if it takes it off.

Or more correctly, had your wheels sandblasted, powercoated, and cleared... vs using spray paint. WTF.

i powedercoated my m3 wheels and spray painted my 335i miro 111 , both in matte black. I cant see any difference and the spray paint did not even have a single chip on all four wheels on the 335i which i put 25k miles. What's wrong with spray painting them?

This is the M3 website, and everyone is very opinionated with what people should do with their own cars. They laugh because you spray painted your wheels, but if you had taken your wheels to a Ferrari dealer and had them spray paint your wheels with the exact same paint, then you would have been cool and earned all their respect. It's all a matter of perspective.
