    Wheels

    what is the finish on the wheels made of? While attempting to clean the wheel weight tape off my wheel this was the end result. I was using goof off and a soft rag. No tool or sharp instrument was used. The more I scrubbed thinking it was a thin layer of adhesive, the worse it got. Would love ideas.6C5CE156-175F-4EBD-8CC5-E3597F452A20.jpeg

    Wow - that's bad. I have changed wheel weights several times on a GTL and RT and never had this problem. After pulling the weight off with a pair of pliers (no prying) I "roll" most of the remaining adhesive off with my thumb, then use denatured alcohol to get the final bit. Apply with a cloth or paper towel and let soak for several minutes. Then gently work the residue off with a soft cloth. Don't use paper towel to rub the softened adhesive, it will scratch the painted surface.
