    Any way to clean/remove white glue from wheels/tires?

    First time glueing tires and was a little sloppy. Any way to remove the excess dried white glue on the wheels?

    Acetone can be used to remove some super glue (found in nail polish removers), but be careful with it, as it can damage the wheel and tire.
    Everyday's a gift, thus now is called the present.

    Goo-Gone works good. Its an adhesive remover buts its quite strong. Or acetone would work im sure.

    I have removed tire glue from the tires with a x-acto knive, some will flake off, some can be scraped off. Use a curved blade to scrape.

    WD40 or rubbing alcohol or Acetone-based nail polish remover and scrub with a used toothbrush.

    Good luck!
