    Found that somebody stuck some gum near my wheel and have been looking at ways to remove it.

    Would a standard bug and tar remover have any affect on the paint?

    Regular car wax will get the gum off. No need for a bug or tar remover agent here. You can also freeze the gum by holding an ice cube to it for a period of time until it is then easily removable. This ice method also works if you step in gum and transfer it to carpet or carpeted floor mats.
