How to remove marks on tires?

What is the best way to get writing from the factory off of tires? When I bought my truck, it had grease pencil marks (or something) on the tires and even scrubbing with a heavy bristle brush has not removed the marks. They are gray or tan in color.

Ive used Mr. Clean Magic Erasers and even a fine grit sand paper "wet" very softly (let it do the work). Magic Erasers can be used for so many things that I keep quite a few of them all the time for just about anything but remember, they are abrasive so use with caution. They work fantastic for alot of different stubborn things that chemicals aren't either working or shouldnt/cannot be used. Try that first. You can find them at any grocery store or WalMart with the household cleaners.

This stuff works great for basically cleaning anything off of a tire. Available at any Walmart, Autozone, etc. But please be advised that this stuff is usually NOT SAFE for any wheel finish. You need to take extra care to avoid getting it on any rims for fear of tarnishing and/ or damaging the surface. I used to just spray it into a bug scrubber pad and then wipe it on. Let it sit for a few seconds then scrub off. Rinse off and you will see how much other crap comes off the tire as well. It works great for removing all the old Armor All residue, road grime, dirt, etc....

Oh yeah, be upwind of it when you spray it onto something. You don't want to get the fumes in your nose....
