Local tire shop swapped on my new tires and balanced the tires. They pulled the old weights and adhered some new weights withour removing the old adhesive.

Have a few questions

1) What is best way to remove adhesive?
2) If I remove the adhesive do we think they will need rebalance?
3) If needs rebalance, should I just remove all the weights and adhesive and have them rebalance again?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I've always used Lacquer thinner and lots of rubbing...works great, just don't use on painted wheels!

same here i use it right on the paint it won't hurt it, once the clear is cured it aint coming off unless you sand it off. soon as i'm done a fresh coat of wax keeps the paint just fine been doing it for years and you can't tell where.
I would pull the wheels off and the weights clean them up and rebalance, if the guy is any good he can hide the weights behind the spoke.
