Cleaning the clear coat off alloy wheels

Has anyone been able to clean the clear-coat off their alloy wheels when corrosion gets under it and starts discoloring the bright wheel? I know this means extra work keeping them clean and shiny without the clearcoat but they look terrible the way they are discoloring.

Yes, I removed the clear coat from a set of Alcoa wheels using various solvents and very, very fine steel wool. Lots of elbow grease, but when finished and polished, they looked great. Just be careful with the steel wool, and be sure it does not scratch the aluminum.
Good Luck
