Removing double sided tape residue?

My OEM 19" forged/polished (2MT) wheels have some double sided tape residue on the inside leftover from balancing. Looking for recommendations to getting it off, WD-40?

No wd40. The wd stands for water displacement which isn't what's you're trying to do.

Goo be gone. Goo off. Both good. And yes.... Patience

I managed to get a little paint discoloration when I used Goof Off on my ZCP wheels. I suppose I let sit a little too long; be careful if you use it. Another citrus based remover didn't cause discoloration.

Bug and Tar remover helps also.

Goof Off can damage the finish.

Do yourself a favor and get a 3M eraser wheel for your drill.

Not a good idea to use a wheel, this can ruin the fnish if it gets hot.



Best is to use microfiber towels and 3M General Purpose Adhesive Cleaner #08984, we use this for trunk spoiler removals so its good for paint. You can get it on Amazon rather inexpensively.

That's what the wheel is designed for, removing badge adhesive and pin striping. It's the easiest, fastest, and most effective way. You do need to use caution not to spin the wheel too fast or sit in one place to long.

Mmmmmm....WD-40 does a LOT of stuff that most people wouldn't think of using it for.

What's the first thing in that list?

The wheels generate quite a bit of heat, its simply not worth the risk of damaging the finish to save a few minutes of labor.

Its fine if you're happy with them. However, we won't be using them anytime soon.

The 3M product practically dissolves the adhesive. No need for a polishing wheel at all.

Anyone knows if the 3M product can remove adhesive from plastic/vinyl interior pieces without damaging the vinyl?

+1. Used properly it's a life saver and won't harm anything.
