Try "Goo-Gone" It takes rubber off, but I know know what it will do to paint.

Usually you can just rub rubber off with your finger though.

If all else fails, see if you can find a clay bar. Clay Magic or Mother's work very well, while Meguiar's clay sucks.

Griot's is good, but you can't find it in Autozone, PepBoys, Advance, etc. It's like Zaino, good stuff but hard to come by.

I know it sounds funny, but I also has some black tar on my truck. I tried so many different things with no results. Finally my friend told me to try, and here is the funny part, Tree Sap Remover. It worked like a charm, but don't rub too hard with that stuff, it will decolor your paint if you rub too hard. Good luck!

Try high quality car solid wax. You have to keep robbing it to get it off slowly.
