I have bought a antique Jeep truck from a elderly man which I intended to fix-up. The problem is the old guy had painted the chrome wheels (all 4) with a gray spray paint. It almost looks like a lacquer. Is there a way to remove the paint from the chrome without causing any damage to the chrome wheels? The wheels look pretty good when I flake some of the paint off. Can you suggest a product or way to do this?

Most organic paint strippers should not harm chrome. Try some on the back of the rim to see if it works and if there is any vile affect on the chrome. Tires off the rims is a must.
