Who cares! Their friken wheels man! Get them muddy a few times and it'll come off when pressure washed. That or some good old WD40 hose it down wait a few mins and scrub it off.

I just did the same drill. I used "Goof Off" product. I bought it at Home Depot. It took a lot of scrubbing.

They balance your wheels/tires so your vehicle doesn't shake apart or you don't break your teeth while you drive down the road.
