    You know what that could be a plan, Couple o gallions of murkyness is cheaper than proper white wall cleaner.
    But so is wd40 but thats not got a good after taste.

    Found general turps on a rag is best. I'd avoid anything that scourers the surface, just gives dust a better key and can quickly grey the whitewall. Best thing i've found are garage handwipes, swarfega red box. No harsh chemicals in them. Clean tyre up with hot soapy water and a sponge ,rinse well and dry. Starting in one place wipe the whitewall in one direction only with a clean wipe. Turn the dirty part of the wipe and repeat a single wipe in the same direction. Basically working around the tyre, cleaning one way only (not scrubbing) and never using a dirty part of the wipe twice. I've had heaps of whitewalls and whitewall tyre flaps and cleaning this way has always kept them mint. To dress them a wipe over with some baby oil every now and then. Helps dress the whitewall and keep it supple. Hope that helps


    I'll get me coat

    Brake cleaner The tyre fitter who fitted my piecrusts this week left grubby hand marks on the whitewall. He was going to do the same thing until i stopped him . As i said in my last post you need to avoid anything thats going to strip the rubber. Harsh chemicals will wreck them and can discolour and crack them. To date the best thing i have used have been the handwipes. Up to you but for ****s sake DO NOT SCOUR THEM!!!!!!

    be carefull when cleaning new ww tyres as the oils in the black rubber can stain the white if you use anything to harsh (no bleach based stuff ) (kitchen/bathroom cleaner)and make thing s harder . my old man believe it or not used lard to remove any oil or grubby marks ,even before he washed his oily hands he used lard rubbed it in wiped with a rag then washed em .its crazy but new grease removes old grease best hand cleaner he used was lard and salt . i use it now , my hands belong to a 18yr old but the rest of me is 47yr old with wrinkles
