    Balance weight glue

    Hi folks
    Just had new tyres put on my alloys. New balance weights have been put on (still on the inside of the rims but in a different place) but there is still the old glue left behind. Any suggestions as to what is the best stuff for getting this off?
    Many thanks

    Get a can of "sticky stuff remover" from B&Q. You could also try boiling water with a bit of fairy liquid, but that would be easier with the wheels off.
