Alloy wheel weight Sticky removal

Well it looks like they ripped some wheel weights off in the past and tbh.... Didnt bother cleaning the Sticky stuff as well

Is there an easy way to remove it? Soaking with a damp cloth and Scratching it off with ye old finger?

Autosmart Tardis is much stronger than the Autoglym stuff and off ebay will cost you a lot less.

Speaking with my Health and Safety hat on


Petrol shouldn't be used due to its high flammability and carcinogenic risks.....

Sadly you have to think about people who may do silly things or not know the risks....

Re: Alloy wheel weight Sticky removal

If I had brought one of my wheels inside the house to clean it, the bigger explosion would come from my wife.
