Morning all. Well I had the wheels re-balanced a few weeks ago because the ones in where very cheap and started to rust great stuff. The problem now is the old balances have left that nasty thick residue. So I decided to get up at 5.30 this morning to give the rims a good scrub along with the arches. I've got all the tar and nasty road muck off but not the balance residue. I've tried autoglym tar remover but no luck. Any ideas or help would be much appreciated.

Thanks stef.

You will need to use something pretty harsh, white spirit, meths, WD40, wonder wheels or the likes. I take it you got as much of the foamy crap off as possible?

That's the word I was looking for. 'Foamy stuff' lol. Yh I got some off. I know my old man used to use unleaded petrol when he cleaned his bit not too sure about that one lol. I think I may need to use a little more elbow grease. It was a bit cold at 5.30 lol.

Surprisingly enough I've read that spud-u-like plastic knives are excellent tools for helping scrape off sticky stuff like badges etc from painted surfaces. PLEASE BE CAREFUL KNIVES ARE DANGEROUS ASK AN ADULT TO HELP ????
