Overspray on tires?

My tires have a bunch of overspray on them from over the years. Is there any good way to get this off? Paint thinner maybe?

You can buy grafitti remover available at many places including lowes ,home depot and ace hardware that should work

Re: Overspray on tires?

I would say try brake fluid but, I haven't experimented with it yet.

I know some truckers that swear by brake fluid for restoring weather checking or mild dry rot on tires. One of them told me to mix it 50/50 with WD-40 and apply daily until results are achieved. He also asked me if I've ever seen a master cylinder rubber diaphragm in bad shape, I said no, he said because rubber loves brake fluid.

Since brake fluid is bad for paint maybe it'll work for you.

Good point about rubber loving brake fluid. I heard someone mention using it on tires and I thought it would be too harsh but never thought that it doesn't each up the rubber diaphram.
