Default Paint removal from tires?

I painted my wheels today and got some overspray on my tires. On some parts its pretty bad.

What can I use to remove it?

next time use vaseline to coat your tires in so the paint doesn't stick.
-use elbow grease with a scotch pad or scrub brush and scrub it off(with soap & water). it's rubber, paint doesn't stick that good to rubber.
-brake cleaner. DO NOT spray on the tire. spray on a cloth and rub ONLY the tire
-paint thinner. again, same as above.

hope this helps
