This is what I do at my shop (and all I do is tires... all i do.. yes it gets repetitive). I take brake clean and spray it on a rag or microfiber cloth and use that to saturate the glue (don't spray it directly to the wheel because it could damage paint). And then I use a Plastic Adhesive Wheel Weight Removal tool which can be had for like 6- bucks and use that to carefully push the glue off the wheel to not scratch it.

I am sure Goo Gone would work just as well, I would go with the same practice of applying it to a rag first before applying to the part where the goo was left on. But a good plastic wheel weight removal tool will help with scratching. Just be gentle.

This is for a 3m One From Amazon:

3M Wheel Weight Removal Tool

And this is a Mohawk one from Grainger which is the one we usually have at my shop

MOHAWK Plastic Adhesive Wheel Weight Removal Tool

Any more questions feel free to ask

I have to ask: why didn't the guy who re-balanced the wheels remove the old adhesive before putting on the new weights? This is normally part of the job.
