Wheel Refinishing

So the previous owner of my car bought a set of black bullitt style rims with the aluminum lip. The lip has a good bit of road rash where either he or I have done it where I ran into a ditch(sad day). Anyways it also has something else wrong with it...it looks like corrosion but I have no idea.
Here are some pics of the road rash

and of the other corrosion type stuff


I was thinking I am going to have to just sand it down and then polish the lip

to get rid of that rash, you can file it down, then sand it. you will be able to notice it, but not as much as you think. if it were me i'd strip them all the way down, at least the lip, and then reclear the entire wheel. you could just repaint the lip by masking off the rest of the wheel.

How would I strip the lip all the way down? Haha I know that sounds dumb.

Paint stripper. Just make sure that you mask it off really well. Give it a buff and clear it.
