Several years ago, some company came out with a tire protectant that you put on with a brush and it looked like the tires had been painted with a cheap paint brush. It was not to make the tire look good,but to protect it from the sun. It also ran and did not stay on the market long. It sounds like someone had some left over. Clean the tires and check for cracks. They may have used it to cover cracked tires.

My Class C had some sort of similar tire blacking shine on it when I bought it. It is indeed nasty stuff and you cannot get it off. I used a number of different cleaners that remove everything. While the stuff "came off" it leaves a residue that is there permanently and prevents anything from sticking to the tire. I tried masking the tire so I could spray paint a couple of rims that needed it, and the tape would not stick.

My tire guy said the stuff is awful and it caused the rubber to check and crack, which mine did. I ended up scrapping the tires and putting an entire new set on due to the fine checking all over the sidewalls where this stuff was.
