Superglue on Wheel

i recently lost one of my center pieces when i was driving, so when i got a new one i i super glued it in because they arent cheap. well the next day im looking at my wheel and the superglue leaked out and dried onto the polished chrome part of the wheel and is really hard to get off. i tried scraping it off with a razor and i only ended up scratching the wheel up... any suggestions that wont mess up the finish on the wheel and will remove the glue??





-thanks

Goo gone maybe. Try it somewhere on the wheel that you can't see first to see if it hurts the finish.
