Can P21S unstick a balancing weight?

After washing my car most recently, I'm noticing some vibration between 70 and 80 MPH on the freeway. Most times I just use soap and a microfiber but there was enough build up to use P21S this time. I didn't use any brushes inside the wheel well is it possible the adhesive came off from cleaning? It could be coincidence too, but thought I'd ask.

any wheel cleaner or apc can assist in removing a wheel weight. even a car can eventually remove them.

its an easy fix go to the dealer and get them balanced again.

it's not a bad idea to get your wheels and tires balanced every so often.

Thanks Phil. I'm due for a rotation anyway but I just wanted to ask since it wasn't something I've encountered before.
