white letters dirty

I bought some brand new Hankook Dynapros with the white lettering and im hoping to keep them looking sharp, does anyone have some tricks as to what cleans/protects the best?
Thanks in advance!

Re: white letters dirty

you wont need 6 bottles Matt.......one lasts a LONG TIME....


some others who will remain nameless use the bleche white to clean tires that have no white on them at all. removes old tire dressing and dirt from rubber well.

in my experience Brillo scrathes the white rubber and makes it easier to get dirty the next time. I MIGHT try 000 steel wool but IDK.



bleche-white works great, is cheap, and harms nothing/

Re: white letters dirty

I used to use Brillo on my old caddy's white walls, and on my TJ's white letters.

It's a PITA because you can have everything perfectly clean but when you go to apply dressing, you'll get funk all up on the white. Just come back with a clean, dry rag and wipe them down after the dressing is on and you'll be fine.

Simple Green and a scrub brush works too.

Re: white letters dirty

Wesley's White Wall Wash - Spray on, let it sit 5 mins and hit it with a stiff brush. Make sure you clean the entire sidewall. Follow it up with Stoner's Tire Shine.
