    ....thar's MEEEEEEEE!! Somehow I ran through a tar puddle (???I must be blind-I never saw one) so I get home and it's all up in the wells and on the side of the rear fender. Luckily I keep this bitch highly waxed cause the tar came right off the wells and fender-but there was a glob of it in my rear tire. So what do I do? I get the bright idea to do a little burnout. NOW it's all around the tire and cooked in:eek:
    Wide open for advice here. Thanks:)

    Thanks you guys-well I went and got this stuff called "Tarminator" and it kicked that tar's ass. So this tread has become a commercial now for TARMINATOR it rocks. Hey if it can dissolve a clump of tar out of the grooves in a tire-it's good stuff!
