CLeaning raised white lettering on OEM Goodyears

I saw this mentioned on another thread, but can't find it so..................

For $3.99 for a 32 oz. spray bottle of Westley's Bleche Wite tire cleaner at Auto ZOne, I got my scuffed-up, dull tire lettering looking like new in about 1/2 hour. Just spray it liberally directly on the lettering (careful! keep it off your aluminum wheel rims!), let it "cook" for a few minutes, spray on some water from another spray bottle to rinse, and wipe it off. Job done! Have plenty of clean rags or shop towels handy -- they'll get real dirty. I used a rag to "dam" the spray runoff from dribbling down on my rims. I didn't use rubber gloves as recommended on the bottle, but could feel the stuff causing a slight burning on some fingers. Wash your hands liberally after using, and don't rub your eyes before you do

This will give you as much satisfaction as cleaning your windshield.

I use that stuff all the time works amazing but i spray it on and then scrub it with a brush real quick and then spray it all off with the hose. Either way great product

Great stuff, It's the only thing to use to get white lettering or whitewalls clean!

It also loosens brake dust on the rims, and removes road scum from the entire sidewall. It's just a bleach solution and hasn't harmed my Jeep alloys for 3 years. Spray it on the whole tire/wheel assembly, scrub-in the tires with a brush, sponge off the wheels, rinse well.
