I have noticed a million (or so) black road tar(?) spots on my white BMW. The spots can easily be felt. I have tried WD 40, bug and tar remover, and 50% white vinegar/50% water mix. None of these things have any effect. I have tried removing a spot at a time with my fingernail with limited success- but, there are a million of them.

Does anyone have any suggestions for removing cured on tar spots without repainting the entire right side? Thanks for any help!

Have you tried washing the car and then running a claybar over the affected surface? Make sure you use lots of lubrication when you do this.

Clay bar is amazing. The car will be as smooth as a mirror when you finish. I do all of mine 2 times each year.

Actually, I haven't tried the clay bar. I'll try this and hope (fingers crossed). Thanks for the suggestions!

STLPCA has recommended using wheel wax for removing tire rubber/tar before. I haven't done it, but I believe a few people had and confirmed it worked well.
