How about replacing them with the Panzer Art resin offerings? Solves the problem completely.

A lot easier to finish the tires before the wheels are glued on

Afterwards, there is not much you can do. Hopefully the wheels are painted. You can try some washes or pastels on the tires. A lot of paint doesn't stick to vinyl or won't stick well.
