    Keeping the lettering white on my tires

    Hi! Was looking for input on the best product to keep the lettering white on my Firestone Destination M/T's that came on my 2021 Willys? Really don't want that to fade like they did on my 2017 JK. Thanks!Willys.jpg

    When I used to have raised white letters showing on the outside of my tires, I used Comet brand cleanser and a brush, which kept them white. Just donít let anyone rub those letters off on curbs!!

    Those brite white sidewall tires in ancient times were kept white using mineral spirits. Even today when you see one of the old school classics roll through with white wall tires at say
    Barrett-Jackson, chances are a car detailer used mineral spirits on them.

    Auto parts stores sell a product called bleach white. It's worked on my old truck

    Spray on a little Fantastik, let it soak then brush it clean!


    It's not just a Jeep, it's an amusement park on wheels.

    ^^ this. Used to be made by Westleys but now it's from Black Magic. We always used a small brass brush but any good stiff bristle brush will work.
