Aluminum wheels and clear coat

I have aluminum wheels that look corroded. It is the clear coat coming off. What is the best way to make these look good.

I have been told bead blast and re-clear. Is there a DIY in the driveway without a bead blaster way?

I'd really like black ones.

I'd like to know as well. I have a set of Jeep Canyon wheels with a few corroded spots...

Google is your friend.

Google "refinishing aluminum wheels" and you will find a multitude of articles. Take your pick of which technique works best for you.
