Ok so I just got new tires about 3 weeks ago now and I have tried just about every wheel cleaner I can find without success. Even Simple Green didn't touch this crap on my tires... My old mainstay of Castrol Tire & Wheel cleaner that works great at removing brake dust and road grime from my rims did absolutely NOTHING to this gunk. Straight out of the tire shop I noticed a milky residue over the entire tire. Now it has worn off of the tread, but not off of the sidewalls. I have scrubbed the crap out of the drivers side tires to get them semi-nice, but they still aren't perfect.
Here'* a pic from the day I had them put on:

Any suggestions? Anyone else ever have an experience like this? They are Hankook Ventus Sport K104s
Please help!!! This is driving me nuts!
