Yes, I could call/ write Stan, but you guys are more fun. I took off a Hutch Python Air lite to change rims. The same tire would not seal on a new rim because there was dried sealant on the bead, etc. Anyway to get this stuff off so that I have a nice clean seal? I had to put in a tube (sorry about the foul language) because there were stands and clumps on the bead.

Have you tried washing your rims? (I'm going to give up being a smart @$$ after the new year) Seriously, a scrub brush and hot water should do the trick.

I don't know about that. I emailed Stan one time and he answered me. He's a nice guy and actually pretty funny too.

To answer the question, I've always just peeled the dried latex away. Its a pain in the rear end, but thats the only real way that I've found to remove it. Its one of the negatives to the sealant.
