Default do it yourself polished wheels

i have heard that you you can take paint remover and strip the paint off of your wheels and then clean them with steel wool and then hand polish them is it true. or should i even waste my time. and if i did try it does anyone have an old wheel that i could buy for cheap to test on first

Sorry the shot is not very close up. I just got done a couple of weeks ago. Took an hour or so to take the paint off... and 30 minutes to tape off the tires and spokes.

Also stripped the paint off the grab bar and polished it!
