Getting paint off rims

Just bought an 03 crf 450. Totally awesome. The guy before me spray painted the rims red to look all anodized. They looked good for one ride, but now the paint is coming off. What is the best way to remove the paint? Will any chemicals damage the finish of the wheel? Any help would be greatly appreciated.


I'd try either carburetor cleaner or electrical contact cleaner, both come in a big aerosol can and should work quite well for you. Neither of them will damage the aluminum/finish of the rim itself. Works well on most types of spray paint I've had to get rid of.

Hope that helps :lol:

If it is just spray paint just use a pressure washer and you can get all the paint off with water only.
