Tar/Asphalt crap stuck to tire

5 posts in this topic

I just noticed I have some tar/asphalt crap on my tire, it's probably about 4 inches long and 2 inches wide. We just had the parking lot refinished at work, and I'm pretty sure that's the culprit.

Anyone have any experience getting this stuff off? I assume i can sort of scrap it off, but if there's an easier way, let me know!

Ice might help to make it brittle (stuff would crack rather then smear).

WD-40.

Get some Bug and Tar remover from your local Autozone (I know they have it...other places will too, I'm sure). That stuff also works on getting window paint off your rubber seals, paint job, or trim pieces.

I got some of it off with a knife earlier today (not a sharp knife, more of a butter/dinner knife), but there's still a lot on there. It was stuck down in the tread of the tire, and it smells like crap with it comes off. I have some bug/tar removed and thought about using it, I'll have to get some WD-40 if that doesn't work.

Thanks for the suggestions.
