Default excess tire glue

anyway to get the excess tire glue of your wheel once it dries? I tried to keep it off the wheel, but even when you wipe it, it leaves a film that attracts dirt.

denatured achohol? Acetone?

Acetone is the best for dissolving glue but be careful that you don't weaken the glue job you just did.

Didn't Quite work for me. What i did was rub on some sticker adhesive remover or you could you polish remover, then lightly sand the sidewall of the tire.

Why don't you just wipe the excess off with a rag while you are gluing them?

lol.

Slow reactions getting to the glue maybe? I never have a problem, even using a thin fast drying glue...

Its also not flowing out like a water fall, that would make it tricky.

There's about 1% of acetone in nail polish remover. Go to the hardware store and buy pure acetone. It is much more effective.

The residue wont hurt anything Dreaux, just leave it be..Your better off with a thin bead of residue than accidentally getting acetone or nail polish remover into your tire bead
