Hmmm... might be an accumulation of brake dust that reacted with road salt over the winter?? That would explain a tar like feel and the pitting as the metallics would have oxidized with the salt/moisture.

If you can get it mostly off try polishing the area, if its mostly a surface issue you might be able to save them.
