I'm a fan of the white letters out.

I have found that murphy's oil soap does a great job on my tires. It cleans the white letters while making the black, blacker (not a word, i know).

"look like you have a few years worth of tire dressing stuck to them with all that brown gunk on there. It looks like you haven't ever cleaned them... get wesleys bleach white like suggested before its only like $4 and get a scrub brush... Soap wont cut through the grime and old discolored tire dressings. But be careful not to let it get on the rims its powerful sh.t.

You cant rock white letters without the Wesley's"


no **** i didnt clean them i have had them on the rims for an hour and the 2nd pic that tire was only wiped down with a wet paper towel and it came right off so i don't know what you're talking about

Last photo.... did you wipe that one.. that's the one I noticed....
I know you havent washed them yet but the brown looks like tire gel stains.
Ive had tires that look just like that one. nothing I did would remove the brown crap off the rubber..except wesleys and a brush.

trying to help you out...but if you want to ride around on new rims, brown tires, and tan letters. that's up to you.

I use a scrub brush on my lettering, works like a charm. Don't forget the soapy water.
I just got my hands on a pressure washer, so we'll see how that works this spring.
