  • Clean chain lube off of rear tyre?

    Cleaned and lubed my chain for the first time today, and did something pretty stupid. I managed to get a sizeable dose of it round the edge of my rear tyre before I realised what was going on. Whats the best way to get it off? Kerosene just didn't seem to work.

    Couple of good suggestions in these threads.

        I'll have a proper read of those, thanks. Don't really want to get a new tyre though, this one is practically brand new Not sure if you can do a burnout on the very edge of the tyre?

            The WD40 + Kero combo worked a treat by the looks of it, guess I'll find out for sure on the way to work tomorrow. If it's still bad, guess I'll have to learn to hoon

            Thanks for the quick responses guys.

                Hey dude,

                You are obviously new to this, when lubing your chain, you only need the smallest amount.

                  Thanks for the tip . That was my plan, but its execution proved to be another matter.

                      sand paper after washing it with soft paper (soap and water) is the best

                        Bump on this
                        I got a small amount on the left edge, all the way round (I got a bit excited) I rubbed it off with a sponge and water(sponge had car cleaner that had dried into it). I came back the next day and it was still shiny and sticky?
                        Should I be worried about leaning it corners?
                        cheers lads

                          if it's only a small amount on the sidewall i wouldn't be too concerned.... if it's on the tread and feels oily/slippy be best to try n remove

                            It's on the outer edge of the tread surface and doesn't feel slippy but sticky, that's what I find weird haha
