Re: Cleaning Whitewall Tires

I'm not sure I've got the spelling correct but for many years I've used a chemical whitewall cleaner called Westley's Bleeche-White, usually applied via a Scotch-Bite pad, with total satisfaction. Once a year was generally enough to maintain them bright and white for the duration of the season.

I'm sorry to hear about the brown color bleeding into the white. I don't know if its true but I've been told that's the result of a failure of a barrier membrane within the tire carcass designed to prevent that migration of dark pigment into the white rubber. Fortunately not a problem I've experienced with my older Lesters and more recently, Bedford Coach tires.
