Paint stripper and tyre rubber

5034 Views 4 Replies 4 Participants Last post by  iowazx6r
I've looked at the instructions/advice for stripping paint from the wheels whilst still on the bike. It doesn't mention anywhere about taking precautions and avoid damage to the rubber.<img src=icon_smile_sad.gif border=0 align=middle>

Is this an issue? I've contacted Bridgestone, for example, who don't know! I've just fitted new BT012SS', and I'm reluctant to be a guinea pig!<img src=icon_smile_dissapprove.gif border=0 align=middle>

Has anyone had any problems?

I took the rubber right off the rim, but many people do it with the rubber on.

Does not seem to hurt rubber at all.
