I picked up some wheels this weekend. :grin: 15" outback 6 spokes. Thanks again to Mike (Mdjdc).

They're in rough shape. But they're not rashed or bent, just have the typical peeling clear coat and lots of corroded bare aluminum. So I'd like to clean these up, and I'm trying to figure out the best stuff to use to strip all of the old clear off.
Anybody here played with aluminum wheel restoration?

A quick jog around the internet on Google suggests that powdercoating is the best way to go.
