Removing wheels from sprue question..

Hello Everyone,
I have a simple question, one in which I don't know the best answer. How do you all remove wheels from sprue and then remove the "plastic burr", if that's the term, without causing a flat spot on the wheel? I use a sprue cutter to remove the parts but rarely can I get the "burr" off without causing some sort of flat spot making the wheel "out of round"?. I would love to see a step by step, I am very visually oriented. Or any advice or tips would be very much appreciated.
