Default Removing tire foam spray sling from paint?

Anyone know an EASY, FAST way to do this without stripping wax? I searched and the only good info I found was that 'Tuf Shine' tire spray does not sling much.
However, my dealer had given me an express wash/detail after an oil change that included the tire spray. I did not notice the sling until I got home. Wiping it smeared it. I tried using a wax/cleaner, which made it a super-duper smeared mess that would not wipe off. I was hoping not to resort to strong cleaners that would strip the wax that is on there.
Any suggestions? Aside from that, the wash job was great for what I (didn't) pay for.
TIA!

I would try an all-purpose cleaner like Simple Green. Spray it on there, let it soak for a couple minutes and then wash it off with a regular mitt and soapy water.

That will work, but you will have to reapply wax, since SG is a degreaser. You may want to try just washing the affected area with your reg car wash soap and see if that works, or just apply wax after using SG.

Thanks...
I was hoping not to have to re-wash those areas because that defeats the purpose of going to a full service car wash.... And having to rewax - uggg.... It was 104* outside today and decided the splatter will just have to stay a while. When it cools down in October or so I may work on it; hopefully it will not damage the paint.... Next time I will insist they do NOT spray the tires.
Live and learn I suppose....

Just leave it on. Won't harm the paint. 😊

I just use Turtle Wax spray detailer. It works great AND doesn't strip wax off. Even leaves it with a nice smooth finish.

Depends; if you get the super hardcore tire shine that doesn't wash off you need a clay bar to get it off

Cheap tire shine can really make a mess of the paint. I bought my truck used and the previous owner used cheap shine, the only way i was able to get the spots off was to clay bar and polish the paint, it was a real pain. Now all i use on my tires is Aerospace 303, great stuff, no sling!

Never thought of using 303 on the tires

303 works great. I just spray some on a foam tire shine applicator and wipe on the tires. It gives it a nice shine, not greasy looking, and once its dry it wont sling off.
