I just had to drive through road construction on a highway with diesel trucks and motor homes in front of me. The road was paved the night before, the asphalt didn't cure and I had 1/4 inch of asphalt and tar stuck to the tread of my tire. The was no where to pull off on the one lane death trap. My tire don't ride smooth anymore. First does this wreck the tread? And the tar acts like it's hardened the rubber, will the tar do that?

It won;t wreak the tire, but will effect your handling. You want to get a putty knife and scrap off as much as you can. When you drive down the road, the residual tar you can't get off with the putty knife will slowly wear off.
