Default Tire Ooze Cleaner

I have Universal tires on my 190A and they are oozing a brown substance through the sidewalls. I have tried many, but I have not found a tire cleaner that takes the ooze off thoroughly even after brushing. I am all ears & eyes for your recommendations.

Have you tried Westleys Bleche-White? That stuff used to take everything off whitewalls, would probably clean off blackwalls just as well.

I had a set of Universals that I replaced with GoodYears. The reason was I could never get the w/w clean. Lesson learned buy cheap don’t expect quality. I’ll Never buy them again .

I don't have a "before" picture but mine were like you described, maybe worse. This is what I used and I am very happy how they turned out.

You can clean whitewalls with NevrDull. It works quite well, but I'd wash them off with soapwater afterwards just to be sure.

It sounds like they were never cured properly when being manufactured.

I had a brownish-goldish hew on my Firestones on the A in my avatar after either sitting for awhile or sun exposure. I use STP's Son of a Gun tire cleaner which works very well.
