Wheel Cleaning 2

Can anyone recommend a safe way of removing the glue/foam residue left behind when wheel weights are removed? Cheers

Are the weights on the back or the front? If on the front, the glue is probably on top of the clear coat. OTC metal polish or wheel cleaner could burn through the clear coat, so try a clay bar or a Mr. Clean Magic Eraser. If that doesn't you might have to try the something heavier like a 3M mild abrasive scrubby for Silverstone pots. Just be careful with the clear coat.

I rec'd a v. light app of GooGone,
lightly applied: more soaking than

WD40 might do the trick,too.

All you are trying to do is loosen and
slightly dissolve the bonding agent and
likes dissolve likes.

Wipe off residue, clean, re-Zaino or
Wheel wax or your Fave topping. You
may never get rid of slight discoloration
due to exposure.
