Electrons haven't even been out long enough for a set to get "old and crusty"

No problem admitting when I'm wrong. Apology sent to seller. Thread was aimed at reconstituting tires and got carried away. Carry on

Not a huge issue, other than your seller might think you're a bit of a nut job

You'll see all different amounts of mold release depending on the brand of tire. And some is easier to remove than others. Just make sure you remove it all from the bead before gluing. The best way to do that, opinions vary. Everything from Simple Green, Windex, motor spray. I personally use PVC pipe cleaner, which is mostly Acetone.

Scrub that off with simple green and a scrub brush.

i thought that rubbing alcohol isn't the right stuff to clean them with... wont that promote them drying out?

I wouldn't worry. I'd clean the beads with simple green, glue'em up and let her eat.
