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.

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 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...
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...
