Tire balancer residue?

Postby relliott » Sun Nov 26, 2017 11:55 pm

What’s the trick to getting the sticky side of tire balancers off the rim? Jim I’m sure you know the answer...I’ve tried a plastic scraper, and gloo off with no success.

A combination of a plastic scraper and Acetone works on painted and powder coated wheels. But do not use Acetone on anodized wheels like on the older GS wire wheels.
