Default Removing auto paint from chrome wheels

Anyone out there know for a good paint remover that won't damage my chrome finish for my rims? Was painting my car and got a little overspray on the rims.

if the overspray isn't too bad [just a few drops or whatever], then the claybar will work great. Otherwise, you will probably need some paint stripper.

Try Goof-Off or Zippo lighter fluid (or any other Naptha based product)
