Hi,

 

Anyone can tell me which product use to clean tyres with white wall....probably it´s an old question...! My white wall tyres have +- 1000 miles and are losing white.....and starting "cracked". I only use water and  dishwashing detergent...! That´s the detergent that causes this? Or the brand of tyres "Universal" that are low quality?

 

Your experiences will very usefull to stop the degradation of tyres....

 

Thanks a lot!

I've used a number of products with varying degrees of success.The fellow that installed my last set suggested using gasoline.It works very well. The no smoking rule definitely applies however !

I use a product called Bleach-White and a small scrub brush, has worked fine for me. I have also used something called Magic Eraser.

Good stuff but make sure it does not remove the paint on the rim. I noticed my rag looked pink and was coming off the poppy red wheels.

Bleche White is best. Rinse well and use rubber gloves as it can cause health issues, I am told. Gasoline is a very poor solvent and, of course, is flammable. If, for example, you have grease on the tire from a leaking axle seal, best to use kerosene to remove the grease and then Dawn or something similar to cut the kero.
