Has anyone ever stripped special wheels down to bare alloy and polished them? What method would you use for removing the paint?

Aircraft Remover. This is a paint finish remover that is good for tough jobs. I'd start with this if I was going to attempt it.

Couple of Youtube videos on the subject with various results.

I had chrome special wheels on my original silver special back in 2003.

Loved the look.

If its like the wheels on my Concorde (and 90% of newer cars) then its a plastic cap glued onto an aluminum wheel, if thats the case you are going to have a hard time chipping all that plastic off

Special wheels are painted. You can strip the paint or have it media blasted, then go to town polishing. No idea what the result would be though.
