white pony wheels help needed

I just bought a set of 17x8 white pony's for my fox. Just one problem....some idiot spraypainted them black!!!

Any way to strip the black and leave the white, or am i going to have to strip down to Al and settle for grey wheels?

If the originals are white powder coat from the factory and the black is spray paint,try oven cleaner. Easy Off oven cleaner is known in the classic car world to remove paint. Spray it on, leave it sit for a few, rub off with a rag. Don't leave it too long if you're trying to preserve the factory layer. This method of paint removal is all about trial and error. If you have to respray them in the end, you have nothing to lose by giving it a shot. I used it on 80's lacquer paint on my '66 VW's dash. Worked perfectly but it's slow. Just take your time and be patient.

Laquer oven cleaner would work. Base coat clear coat it won't. Better off sanding and priming yourself, then get them sprayed, you will be happier in the end.
