: Cleaning Adhesive Off Wheels

I got new tires yesterday and I am wondering if there is a good product to use to remove the adhesive remaining on my wheels where the old weights were?

I've used WD40 to do this. Apply in a test spot to make sure it doesn't do anything bad.

I've used it on paint, wheels, and glass with no problems (but always still test first). Dissolves the adhesive pretty easily.

I've used Goof Off and it does the trick.
