Browning Tires

My wheels are browning and look horrible. I've only had them in for 2 months!

They are the stock 3 season run flat option.

I only take my car to gas station washes and use the touchless ones.

What's up?

Re: Browning Tires

You need to scrub them with a brush and all purpose cleaner everytime you wash your car.

Hand washing is the best way to have a swirl and scratch free finish.

Re: Browning Tires

There's no substitute for hand washing. That's the only way you're going to get the road film and brake dust off.

I use bleche white and a nylon scrub brush on the sidewalls. On the wheels, a normal soapy wash mitt with frequent rinsing of the mitt.

Re: Browning Tires

The brown is the dirt build up. Scrubbing brush and soap removes the dirt then finish off with Armor All. Looks like a new one.

Yep ... even on blackwalls. I even use it to clean the gutters on my house.

Re: Browning Tires

Eff that bleach white shit next to your PVD black chrome rims.


Use Sonax Wheel cleaner. Great stuff.

Re: Browning Tires

Robert,

I've seen Sonax wheel cleaner but do they make a product for the tires?

Re: Browning Tires

You don't need any tire cleaner. Do NOT use Simple Green or anything like it. Period.

Get a Nylon Tire Brush like recommended. When you wash your wheels and spray Sonex/Adams Deep Wheel Cleaner (same damn stuff), spray 4-5 spots on your tire. After I use an EZ Detail brush on the wheels I take my tire brush, spread the wheel cleaner with it, then I dip it in my soap bucket and immediately start scrubbing the tires. It doesn't take a lot of scrubbing. Wash everything off, finish cleaning your wheel and move to the next. Works like a charm.
