rattle can on tires...

so I did my stock rim painting this weekend, turned out awesome, except i read in a write up that the paint just "rolls up and off the tire" if you get it on, so i didnt bother putting index cards in there... and now im faced with trying to removed the residue from the tires.
i was thinking a scuff pad or a sanding block of sorts with a delicate hand would work? my step dad told me to use laquer thinner on a rag and be delicate, but that doesnt seem like the brightest of ideas... anyone have this problem or any bright ideas? your help is much appreciated/

Paint

I think L/thinner will be ok. Try a little at a time.

scrub brush and some soap you would use to wash the car. A little elbow grease and it will come right off. I had the same when I painted my stock rims and had some overspray.

The way I usually get paint off anything is with sandpaper. Save yourself some elbow grease and use nature's sandpaper by hitting up the sand dunes!

Otherwise, you can try Acetone.

FYI I used a butter knife and put some elbow grease on it, and it looks great. I didn't wanna run out to purchase some of the things listed without giving that a try first. I appreciate the help and the fast replies guys.
