i may be late to the party, but 1. paint stripper will not hurt chrome on the wheel 2. you don't need to clear a chrome wheel 3. paint stripper can damage/soften/remove powder coating depending on the chemicals used.

Hey, on that first completed wheel/tire... You have a weak sidewall...that thing could blow. Just a heads up...that's what bubble is.

Thanks for the warning man I'm going to ride it out. I get my tires for a $30 a piece from this wear house here in Charlotte so I'm not complaining.:)

Any chance this would work on a 2G Stratus? I mean like the true 2G version (2002.)
This will only work on one specific wheel. 2003-2005 Dodge Stratus COUPE wheels with Chrome faces. If it worked for other wheels I would have posted it.

Browse a few posts back and you will find my how to explaining the details of this mod. I know the ins and outs of this mod, because I discovered it and did research/homework about it.

Yeah, I saw the article on 2GStratus, but figured it wouldn't hurt to ask anyway. I thought perhaps you didn't have a regular 2G coupe to play around with, and so maybe hadn't tried it on that.

Thanks for the insight though!
