I know none of us have whitewalls on our cars, but like me, Im sure you have parents whom may have white walls on their car.

My mom for example used to own a Lincoln Towncar. Anyways, they look nice with Whitewall Tires. If you see that whitewalls are becomeing less white... One thing ive found out is that if you just take a little bit of steal wool, some soapy water, and use some good elbow grease, the yellow grim and dirt come right off and the white looks brand new again. Lets hope your whitewalls were as good quality as my moms lol. Try it on a small section at least and see if it works.

Brillo pads work pretty well too. If the whitewalls are raised, like the RWL tires, you could try very fine grit sandpaper.

True, but be careful using regular steel wool, it has a tendency to splinter off and get stuck in the skin. Brillo pads are packed a little tighter and seem to splinter less.

Coil cleaner works very well too. If you work in the refrideration business, you know what im talking about. It will take off all the dirt and shit from your tires and rims. Not much elbow grease needed. You can get this stuff at a refrideration parts store. But beware...it can take off that nice paint job too...only use it on tires. I garauntee ALL the dirt will come off.

use an all purpouse cleaner first, then a wax,grease,adhesive remover with a stiff brush... and they are white... works every time...

Coil cleaner is some real potent shit. You know if it can take off your paint, you know its pretty strong. Fuck sittin there scrubbing all day. I got a soft brush and cleaned off my Cadillac white walls in about 15 minutes. Just use it one time...you will see what im talkin about.

the thing is, do you really want that stuff coming near your paint? or clearcoated painted wheels?

grease remover removes the roadfilm which makes the white walls turn brown, i can clean 4 tires in a lot shorter then 15 minutes, plus the worse that happents to your car is you need to reapply wax on your lower panals, something you should be doing anyway if you are washing... and how does coil cleaner hold up with the natural fibers inyour tires? i bet it can cause premature degradation... I know im not putting anything on my tires that isnt meant for car care... they are the things keeping you on the road...

I use a barbeque brush. It works awsome. Its one of those $3 brushes that has like a 2 X 2 1/2" brass bristle brush on one surface and a brillo pad on the other. It HAD a grill scraper on it but I ripped it off cuz of the potential of gouging the alloy. The brillo pad is kinda worthless but the bristles are brass and they don't rust. The handle is plastic and ergonomically speaking, fits very well. I been useing it for 4 or 5 years and has become a fixture in the wash bucket.

Bleche White or Simple green. No need to use a harsh abrasive. And a scotch pad.
