Get the white lettering on tires

What can I use to really make the white lettering on my tires pop? Something that will keep it that way for a while too would be good. I use normal tire shine crap and armor all but it doesn't really get the lettering looking nice, just the rest of the tire. Thanks.

I use a concentrated spray cleaner/degreaser called "awesome" and a soft bristled scrub brush meant to clean your hands/nails . Best part is the cleaner comes from the dollar tree , only a buck for a big *** spray bottle of it. It will whiten them right up, then you can shine them with whatever tire dressing/ amor all type product you choose.

You know the hand cleaner engineers/mechanics/fitters use, with the granuals in to remove the grease, get yourself a nail or scrubbing brush & work that soap in to your tyre, rinse off & hey presto..you'll be ammazed by the result..I thank you.

Wesleys bleach white here too. I spray the whole tire, let it sit about 15 seconds, and use a stiff plastic brush on the whole tire, and after you take a hose to it, the grime runs off like black ink. And I bleach mine once a week, I couldnt imagine how bad it is if you dont do it regularly.

I use Eagle One aluminum rim cleaner on the rim (melts brake dust) and tire (same thing) and my white letters have been bright white for 3+ years on my Firebird.

Wesleys again.. Plus you need to locate and add "elbeau greace" with a nice stiff handbrush.
