Default Glue on the outside of the tire.

Hey guy is there any way you can take the dry glue off from the outside of the tire? I bought a set of wheels/tires mounted and the person that i got it from probably put to much glue on the tire and it spill onto the tire. I know that doesnt do anything to the tires but i like having my tires looking nice and clean mounted on the wheels.

if you go out in the warmup before a race the glue will come out after 1 or 2 laps because the glue will not flex with the tire and it will break.
go hard or go home

If it's really getting to you, then get some acetone and put it on a rag and rub,rub,rub. BTW finger nail polish remover is acetone if your going to go cheep. Don't foget the Tag or at least Old Spice for the Bling. The guys in the pits will love ya' and the lady with the hot dog stand will chase you.

Y'all are really going overboard with this "Tag" thing... I think I have a headache now. (probably from smelling all the Tag at the track mixed with nitro fumes this past weekend...)

+1 use nail polish remover. Buy AKA's next time. Mine have allways been glued good and only need one piece of bubble yum gum to balence.

We were mixing Goof off, Buggy grip, and Tag body spray on our slicks so that the wet clay of the indoor track at Ashtabula, Ohio sticks to the tires. Weird stuff.

Clay on clay = grip, where at other indoor tracks we try to find a way to keep the clay from packing on the tire! (extra tag body spray.)

At Akron indoors were using Goof off (label goo remover, yellow metal can red top), and tag body spray.

Cool thing about indoor tire treatments is that you can see cool spots spinning around on the walls and everybody gets real happy and silly. Except for that poor guy who sees himself covered in snakes/spiders. One in every crowd.

I want to be dericious to.
