Default Aluminum rims

Have a 97 Blazer with factory 12 hole alumimum rims, they look crappy, while I had one off today I took a look as cleaning up and realized that there appears to be a coating on them, that is pealing/oxidizing, what can I do to clean the up and do they need to be recoated after with something.

you can get aircraft stripper from local parts store, sand them down and refinish them.
its not hard just time consuming.
dupont makes a nice wheel paint, there are alot of us on here who have repainted the factory wheels.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about these wheels, not saw blades.

Oh ok. I was a little confused, don't see many 2nd gens with those wheels around here and I didn't know his many holes the saw blades have. Was curious because mine have some pitting that I'd like to try to remove

The harsh rim cleaner seems to eat that clear coating right off when you use it to much. It happened to mine , I would like to have them powder coated eventually.
