I would see if you can get them aquablasted, or put them in the dishwasher to start with.

I can not sit still. I have been tested for A.D.D. and A.D.H.D. and have neither. I don't need coffee, I just need a B.M.X. or surfboard to consistently ride and I'll be happy. smile

Actually powder coating would look better.

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

Try this soap first with warm water.  It is all natural.

Then if it doesn't work or if you have grease spots try simple green diluted with water followed up by using that Dr. Bonner soap

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

Works AWESOME on white mags... should be fine for tires.
Just a little elbow grease & this and you should be all good.

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

to many chemicals in soft scrub....will do the job but will ruin the rubber in the long run.  Same with Wesley's bleach white, used it in the '90 on car tires....premature cracking

well that's pretty true. oxy clean would be much better than the soft scrub and that wesleys crap sucks. i think it was wesleys tire clean crap that made my truck tires start to crack prematurely. the white tires arent mine so i guess i really dont g.a.s.. i do remember though when i bought some white gt tires a few years ago there were little rust spots on them and i used some ajax and they came right off.

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

thanks guys. I appreciate all the help. I was kinda disappointed that they aren't as white as all my painted parts. They just dont look new.

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

wesleys bleach white is made for tires...no cracks here,always worked great......works good on dingy clear grips too,i mean if you used it in 1990 and your tires are cracking now,thats probably just the 23 year old tires not the bleach white.  LOL

lol lol   In the '90's I used that product.  Two years later (still in the '90's) my BFG's started cracking.  Simple green is the best on tires

i got my truck in 2009 with new tires and after 6 months of using tht crap they starting cracking on the top of the tire. took my truck to the dealership to get an oil change and they suggested i get new tires and i had to remind them the tires were new.

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

I wouldn't recommend the dishwasher route, especially if there are logos on the tires... My tires came out like new, except for the logos sad

Thankfully a steady hand and fine brush got them back to this smile

Re: Best way to make white tires whighter without hurting the tire.

Guys I never had an issue with tires cracking after cleaning with  Wesley's bleach white maybe because I armor the shit outta them after I clean them.   And make sure to hit the msg and brake pads with armor all too, Then find a steep  hill. Lol....   Seriously -  natural is probably a better route but I haven't experience an issue with Wesley's
