BLEACHING WHITE TYRES - ADVICE NEEDED!
« on: April 14, 2019, 11:11 AM »
Hi fellas,

has anyone successfully beached a creme, once-white tyre back to white?

And if so how did you do it, how long for, and what did you use?

And how did you not bleach the tanwall?

I really (like really!) don't wanna fook up these 35 yr old tyres, so need an approach with little margin for error if poss!

Many thanks!

Mark

Iíve never heard of anyone bleaching tyres before, but thatís not to say that it canít be done.

A few years ago, I used trainer whitener, you know the type with the foam pad. Itís quite controllable as in stopping from bleeding on to the tan wall, providing you donít flood the foam when adding more of the solution, if that makes sense.

I used the hanbrakeís hairdryer to cure it once applied.

Worked well for me.

+1 I would go with the idea above. Give them a good clean first.  :)

Bleach is good on seats as I have done it a number of times. But keep checking as it will eventually turn yellow. As for tan/skin walls never known anyone to do it so be careful if you do.  :-\  :daumenhoch:

Many thanks fellas! A couple of guys on the Facebook Rad group mentioned hydrogen peroxide too, so will work out which way to go I guess. Many thanks for replies!
