I rolled over some hot asphalt that lay over a sidewalk corner (recently, as it was still warm). It has dried and is now coated on my tires. It's encrusted and looks very nasty. Scraping is not getting much off at all (it's pretty flat on tire surface) and soap doesn't seem to be working either.
I'll try getting some help to scrape, but it will be a pretty tedious and laborious task which I know no one is going to be too eager to do. So, I'd like to know what will be effective in cleaning or dissolving it? In my search, I'm reading warnings about using chemicals or solvents, as they may damage tires.
Will Mineral Spirit work? Goo Gone? Just plain soap and water (maybe need to leave it on longer)?
Will it just flake off in time?
I'd appreciate any suggestions. Thanks!
