iw always wondered if you clean your white walls too much will they begin to fade?

is it possible to clean your whites too much to where they'll start to peel or fade away to black?

or are whitewalls actually white rubber cut into black rubber?

bleche white is the best!

MOST tires have a black side and a white side. so if you cut a tire in half you could see the white and black. so i dont think its going to peel off. i think that bleaching them to much might be bad, my oll man told me that if i used it to much the white would turn colors :uh: i dont know i just use bleach white for a touch up on the road :biggrin:

What about Eagle One Tire Wipes?
those contain tire shine and are used as a tire dressing AFTER u clean them. get a stiff bristled brush with bleach white and scrub and the whites will be clean as hell.

White rubber is a natural compound. You should not use bleaching agents or any any other harsh chemicals, because it will eat at the rubber.

Just use a plastic brush, and any mild cleaner, like simple green.

The problem you might have is with the carbon black bleeding through from the black underwall, if so, they won't ever come clean.

your other thing you can try if you get scuffs is use really fine sand paper (anything over 1000 grit and use wet) and lightly sand the rubber down to some whiter rubber, just be careful on how much you sand. :thumbsup:

I HAVE NEVER HAD A PROBLEM WITH RUBBER DRYING OUT. THATS PROBABLY WHERE TIRE DRESSING, ARMOUR ALL COMES IN IT'S LIKE LOTION FOR TIRES.
AS FAR AS WHITE COMING OFF OF WHITE WALL THE ONLY WAY I SEEN THAT HAPPEN IS FROM OLD TIRES SITTIN OUT AND NOT TAKEN CARE OF. ;)
