Unearthing a Timeless Beauty: The Origin of Whitewall Tires

Before we rev up our whitewall cleaning class, let’s pull over for a quick pit stop down memory lane… 

how to clean white walls

Did you know that tires, back in the day, used to be all-white, treads and all? It’s true! 

But these pristine all-white rubber rings didn’t age well and were soon upgraded. That’s when manufacturers introduced the now-iconic whitewall tire – a black tread combined with white sidewalls. 

This aesthetic marvel quickly became a symbol of luxury and style. Fast forward to today, and here we are, cherishing that same elegance (with a touch of elbow grease).

Alright, hop back in, and let’s get down to the nitty-gritty of how to pamper your whitewalls like they deserve.

Setting the Stage for Whitewall Rehab

Cleaning your whitewall tires kicks off with a crucial choice: the right cleaning product. Steer away from harsh chemicals like bleach or alcohol – those only lead to the dreaded yellowing or more tire damage. 

Isn’t the whole point of cleaning something to make it look better and protect it from getting all messed up? 

Instead, opt for a top-quality cleaner that is designed specifically for whitewall tires. We suggest using Torque Detail’s Decon Wash Soap, it’s specifically formulated to dig deep and remove all contaminants, including metallic brake dust. It’s the quickest, most effective solution on the market today!

Perhaps you don’t feel like putting on your pants to venture out into public in search of whitewall-specific tire cleaners. That’s cool, read on to learn about a few great solutions that you just might have lying around the house. Just make sure that before you get to work in the driveway, put some pants on… No one needs to see that…

The Art of Whitening

Sometimes, whitewalls might hold onto a hint of yellowing or some stubborn spots. But don’t sweat it, here are a few tricks to up your cleaning and whitening game by using everyday household items:

  • Option A: Baking Soda – Sprinkle this kitchen hero onto a damp cloth or sponge and gently rub your tires in small, circular motions. Each swipe brings you closer to gleaming perfection.
  • Option B: Eraser Cleaning Pads – Yes, these magic eraser pads aren’t just for household chores. Wet the pad and your tires, and then wipe those whitewalls down in small, circular motions. For best results, thoroughly rinse or replace the pads between tires.
  • Option C: Sandpaper for Stubborn Yellowing – For those extra stubborn yellow patches, a gentle touch of fine, dry sandpaper comes to the rescue. Sand away the yellowed layer gradually and carefully (seriously, don’t go all He-Man on it).

Prepping Your Whitewalls

Now that you have your whitewall tire cleaner of choice in hand, it’s time to pamper those tires. Give them a spa treatment with a good soak using a hose. And don’t forget to moisten your cleaning pad as well – the traditional, tried and true SOS pad should be your go-to for everyday whitewall cleaning. Wet it, and get it!

Let the Scrubbing Begin!

Here’s where you get to channel your inner car-cleaning guru. Put in some good old-fashioned elbow grease to scrub those whitewall tires to a shine. The effectiveness of the cleaning is all about the duration and intensity of your scrubbing, not just the product.

If it feels like an intense workout, don’t hesitate to call in some reinforcements – a friend, family member, or neighborhood kid will do the trick.

Rinse and Revel

As you scrub away, don’t forget to rinse your tires every few minutes to gauge your progress. If they’re still not gleaming as you’d like after rinsing, get back to work! 

Reapply the cleaning product and keep it up. Once you’re satisfied, give your tires a spa-worthy rinse to ensure no dirt or suds are left behind.

Keep the Sparkle Alive

Now that you’ve put in the hard work, let’s make sure your whitewall tires stay fabulous. Clean them at least every two weeks for much more hassle-free maintenance. A simple wash with water, Decon Wash Soap, and a sponge or rag is all you should need for regular upkeep.

For any persistent dirt or discoloration (less likely with regular cleaning), level the playing field with a stronger scrub pad or brush.

Dress for Success

Once your whitewall tires are all cleaned up, it’s time to add the finishing touch – tire dressing.

And there simply isn’t anything better than Graphene Tire Shine Spray from Torque Detail. This product redefines tire care with its remarkable features.

Be Storage Savvy

If you don’t sport these white-walled beauties full-time, when you go to store them, remember this: space matters. Avoid letting whitewall tires lean against each other, as the black rubber may smudge the white. 

And, if you must stack them, use plastic sheeting or individual bags to keep them safe. In the wise words of The Offspring: “You gotta keep ‘em separated”.
