If it is tar, but very sporadic then instead of spraying all over the wheel soak a makeup pad in tardis and rest it on the spots. After a few minutes they should just come off if it is tar

Just done my wife's 18 month old Civic wheels (ready to protect with Angelwax wheel sealant) and had exactly the same problem. Tardis removed it because it's tar (actually had two lumps that looked like balancing weights, other than the texture). I think it's better to remove with Tardis than hack at them with clay or polish

+1 for davec there - OP, as you don't know if it's tar or metal, then instead of buying 2 bottles, get this one and it will cover all bases

Agree with the TRIX idea.

IMO tiny pitted black specks sound like someone ran their brakes either low or too hot. I had similar when my rear calliper seized on, got very hot and spat tiny black particles which burnt their way in.
