Yeah weird huh? All the weird shit happens to my jeep. It's happening on all four tires. They are rated to 119 mph but I don't see how they could turn blue. It looks like a stupid ricer mod lol

How fast have you gone on them? Heat damage bro... but i still dont see blue as an indicator. Usually the tire shows signs of fatigue in other ways

I've been up to 172 on them before but this happened just lately and I haven't gone fast lately. Maybe I drove over some radioactive alien shit yesterday on the "trail"

I can see that happening to you. Have you tried to clean them?

Re: What did you do to your WK today?

I would suggest cleaning them. Has to be some sort or residue you picked up from a trail or road. That's really weird.

Haha!! You guys are crazy sometimes... The bluish tint is from the oils and anti corrosives they blend into the rubber. Your tires are Nitto's, which are made by Toyo, and they use a high silica blend compound in their rubber to prolong life and increase wet weather traction. The tint usually becomes visible after being on dry, dusty roads for a length of time, the dirt and arid condition draws the oils to the surface a bit and the dust clings to it. Some liquid wax and clear rinse agents the auto car washes use can cause the same effect as well. It's nothing to be concerned with safety wise, just cosmetic. To remove you'll need to use an acid base wash or degreaser on JUST your tires, or let it subside naturally, which it will, just takes a while (knowing you, you'll probly be out at 0100 hrs with a toothbrush cleaning it!! Hahaha!!!). I've seen this on plenty of tires, more so on farm applications. Back in the day you'd see all sorts of reds and purples (I've even seen bright pink occur) from the different chemicals the manufacturers would try.
