Hey Hey HELP!

First off, I know this post could probably go in the wheel subcategory, but at the same time removing stickers are not limited to whees, so here we go...

I have a pair of Mavic Cosmic Carbone SLR's with the exalith braking surface. They have the subdued sticker with the yellow magic sticker (which are not the problem here). Specifically these stickers are the problem:

I have tried using the "hair dryer" method with is working better then a razor blade... But, I am being left with huge amounts of glue residue, despite the heat from the dryer. This residue is now expertly resisting my efforts with Goo Gone and refusing to be rid from my wheels...

PLEASE HELP!! I still have a rear wheel and half a front wheel to go; not to forget the half a front wheel to go of residue...! Ugh... These particular stickers are just evil compared with mid 2000's Carbones and Zipp stickers which are child's play compared to these suckers!

I look forward to some ideas and hearing what has worked for others...!
