What is the best way to remove glue from rims ?

I have tried hairdrier , but did not touch it .

How about nail varnish or white spirit ?

If its sticky you want some thinners or petrol. If its hard scrape and don't let it go sticky. Leave as much as you can of a nice level base.

If it's hard you need to sand it down

The reason I asked is that the red tub glue was an absulute nightmare to remove and was best sanded flat or the bigger bits chipping off......I hated it :(

Likewise if the old white-ish tub glue is rock hard then it needs sanding flat......
