Default New sneakers for the car (Sonoma plz look)

Winter is coming and I live in New England. Besides I've hated the tires since I bought the car with them.

The great guys at Costco hooked me up and Michelin had a deal if you bought tires before the end of October. Price was better than TireRack or others after mounting and balancing. Road hazard is included, rotation can be done while I shop and Costco fills with nitrogen.
Here they are:

I walked out when the guy handed me my keys to find the car right there at the side of the building saying "Look at this cool car". Sonoma..the request was put in and now I need to clean where they were. Looks much better w/o them on the outside. (Wheel weights) I looked down and had to go back inside, anyone see what the problem was?
Here'* the after I got home, inflated them to my specs, tire shined and changed the problem that I saw at Costco.

Anyone?
