Rim clear coat turning yellow?

So my rims clear coat was turning yellow and peeling I decided to take it off.
The results Make it look brand new! The chrome lip shines better than ever! ( the white on my tires and rim is rim polish I'm still buffing off )

They look good! Man, that's odd that it would start peeling off. How old are they?

There around 5 years old.
I guess from the sun it just started to peel, not the whole rim just where the chrome lip is.
And idk why it was turning yellow/gold.
Just thought I should share if anyone was having this problem I could help fix it.

It's called aircraft paint remover from auto zone in the paint section it's for aluminum only! Dot put it on anything else or it will strip the paint off the chrome lip is aluminum it peels the clear coat right off.

It's made to strip paint or clear coat off of aluminum.
