Question Wheel Balance Weights Adhesive

Any recommendations on how to effectively and effeciently remove and clean the adhesive strips left on the wheel after a tire rotation & balance? I've tried rubbing alcohol, Meguires cleaning solvent, razor blades and combinations thereof. Thanks for any help and assistance.

Try using any orange oil cleaner or air freshener, or try Motsenbockers #2 from Home Depot - either one works great on adhesive or tar.

Use a bug and tar remover or adhesive remover. Tarminator or 3M is what I use.
