Stripping clearcoat/refinishing help

I'm just wondering if Bmw alloy wheels are painted and if using a clearcoat stripper will take off the paint. I'm doing this because the clearcoat is peeling off of my rims, probably due to a bad refinishing job by the dealership. On top of that my wheels are curbed when I bought them so I might as well fix it up.

If the wheels are painted and I have to prepare for re painting what color paint will I have to get? I have the luxury line wheels if that helps.

One last question, it should be fine to do this while my wheels are on the car right? Assuming I don't let the paint run.
