Road Tar Problem

The other day as I parked in a local parking lot, when temperatures were above 95 degrees, the crack sealing tar adheared to my rear tires and pulled off of the parking lot as I pulled away. So now I have about a 1 inch layer of tar stuck to my tires causing my vehicle rumble terribly. My question: how do I remove the tar from my tires? I have tried to pick and pull it out of my tread, but it is stuck fast. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Perhaps working along edge of tar with tar remover and putty knife you can work the tar off tires. Tar remover will need time to soften tar.

Last Thursday we had a car come in for the same problem. After 3 hours of picking and digging, we were able to save 2 tires. The other 2 had to be replaced. Plan on spending a good part of the day trying to remove the tar, it sucks.
