Default How do you clean up CA on rubber tires?

Wondering what the best way to clean up a sloppy tire CA glue job is on rubber tires. I'm thinking acetone but I don't want to wreck the rubber.
Thanks in advance for the responses.

If I've ever been sloppy with the tire glue on on-road tires to the point that it's going to affect traction, i.e. glue on the tread, I use a Dremel tool with a fine grit sanding drum or a wire brush.

Nitromethane will desolve ca glue. Just wet a rag with 30% and rub away.

I have had limited success with CA-uncure.

You could try the super glue remover also. I have used that on things in the past including fingers and it works pretty well.
