Peeling clear coat machined wheel

I have learned a great deal during ownership of my '92 coupe, combed the blogs for help with issues,(Bose, ride control, loose driver door panel) found a great garage for repairs, made new friends at shows, joined NCRS, and the Corvette Museum, to name a few.

I have 2 questions, if anyone can share with me I would appreciate it. First, regarding restoring the factory machined sawblade wheels, is it feasible to strip the clearcoat off and maintain them with quality aluminum polish? Mine are peeling a bit now. Second, I have sumitomo tires with the V sipe pattern, tire grip is not so great in wet/cool weather. I drive year round, (but not in snow/ice), what tires do others recommend, for better performance? Should I go back to the Eagles? Thanks for any input. S.
