actually, it's likely a protective blue coating over the white lettering... soap, water, and elbow grease will remove it. if you're in a hurry, a moistened SOS pad should do the trick, as well.

X3 on the Bleach-White, or use Simple Green if you are concerned about any pets you may have. Its environmentally friendly, and does just as good a job. You can find it at Lowes, Home Depot, and I'm sure at most auto parts stores. You might need a spray bottle of your own though.

Just leave it and let it wear off. Let everyone know you just got new tires.
