Clearcoat Stripper

If I use Klean-Strip Aircraft Remover on the clearcoat on my Aluminum wheels will it remove the black stuff in the pictures that I attached? I am having a really hard time sanding that stuff out. How much stripper will I need to strip (4) 16" wheels, a quart or gallon?

Thanks very much guys!

Looks to me more like pitting than anything..i suppose you could get a quart of stripper and try it as it probably will not hurt anything to give it a try..

I have tried most all of it and now do what is known to work..

corrosion pitting is exactly what that is and stripper isnt going to remove it. You need to sand with a more aggressive grit to sand past that and work your way to finer grit before polishing.
