Rubber debris on tires after track day

After my first track day this past Monday, I ended up with a lot of rubber debris in my tires (pict below). The car drives fine and there is no vibration.

I tried to pull out smaller pieces but the rubber feels fused to the original tire.

I googled the subject and did not find a good answer so I was wondering if: 1) Does anyone know a good way to remove the debris? And 2) Do I even need to remove it?

Thanks in advance.

No need to remove it. It will wear away soon enough. If the tires are still balanced, nothing to worry about.

No need to remove it, as others have said. This happens because of the heat and the "scrubbing" of the tire across the tarmac. Some of the rubber wears away and forms those clumps you see there. No need to worry about it. All this means is that you were driving fast.

When I switch back to my street wheels at the end of the day, I usually pull off what I can before I put the track wheels back in the car.

Big clumps like that, though, usually don't come off easily. It hasn't been a problem for me yet.

You should see motorcycle tires after a track day!

When one wants a cabriolet, is there really any other choice than an M3? No. No, there's not.

That's just pick-up. When you go offline there are marbles or chunks of rubber that collect in those areas. When your tires get hot, they pick up those pieces of rubber and they stick to your tires. Go take a few hard corners and it should scrub right off. If you have pick-up on all four tires, the car might feel squirrely on those first couple of corners though.

If you want to srape it off you can. A heat gun and a chisel works well, but I wouldn't bother if you aren't feeling any vibration.

Thank you all for the feedback. It sounds like I just need to keep driving and not worry about it... Or drift them off!
