Tar removal


Does anyone have a full proof way of removing caked on tar from the inner rims of tires on a brand new SUV? Short of taking the tires off, I am at a loss. On a recent road trip to the Grand Tetons, we had to travel over several miles of roads under construction that made a mess of my car. Even after 2 rounds of using tar removal, my tire rims are still a mess (I did manage to finally get the tar off the car itself). It’s a brand new SUV, so don’t want to leave it there to fester for the next 10 years.


CITROL it is a degreaser made by schaeffer oil company.The stuff melts the tar right off.Good luck



Believe or not, my father in law used kerosene to that. It worked pretty good for him.
