Today coming home from work they were repaving in front of my neiborhood and my tires got covered in fresh road tar and gravel. I tried getting it off with some fun driving and most of it came off but there's still a little. Does anybody know a common method to get this crap off without having to drive like I stole it.

Brake cleaner also works wonders. Just be careful with the overspray, some of them have strong solvents in them.

" No Really officer....I was trying to get the tar and gravel off of my tires...I wasn't driving fast and flinging around turns because I like to drive like that...Really...don't you believe me?"

At first it was like driving on a slip in slide. My tires were driving on tiny rocks. I never experinced understeer and oversteer on the same drive before. When first getting the crap off the front tires ment taking sharp turns fast where I really had a lesson in understeer. Then cleaning off the rears using the e-brake and quick lane changes intruduced me to oversteer. I discovered understeer is better if you have to choose one. By the end of my drive I had 90% of my grip back. Now I get to spend the day getting the rest off by hand.
