Cool removing paint from aluminum wheels and tires

when i said that my huffy bike was done, i meant the assembly and working part was. when i spray painted today i got some on the tires and rims and i dedcided to spray the rest of the tires with a little gold with a fade of grey. i got to thinking about it and i would like to remove the paint form, both of them so i will have something more to my bike than just paint. you have to admit that wheels and jet black tires do set off bike, car, etc. well any help is appreciated and if it can be done then i need to remove it bythe end of tommorrow.

Not sure it's worth trying to remove paint from tires - paint remover would probably damage the rubber. I'd invest in some cheap new tires.

Definitely get the paint off of the rims - it will reduce your braking performance.

glad to hear that the chain is working out.
