Quote from: Whit Otis on August 27, 2007, 05:59:17 PMI used Westley's for a number of years.... why? Because it was easier than scrubbing. However, after some years of using it on my WW's, I found the sidewalls became chaulky looking, almost like it dried out the tire. Recently I bought a new set of radials from Diamondback... interestingly, they recommend you scrub your tires with cleanser, SOS, etc. and strongly state that you should not use Wesley's or any bleach product for the reasons I found out in sentence #1. Info on their website http://www.widewhitewalltires.com/ page 22 in the catalog.Good luckWhit Otis

However, when I bought the tires and spoke with them about tire pressure and proper cleaning issues, they specfically named Westley's as a product that should not be used. I presume that they would not name a specific product in their catalog due to the possibilities of some sort of resulting litigation. Since both Westley's cleaner and bleach are a corrosive, one could conclude that the effects on tires might be the same.. however, this is a subject I will leave for others to reseasrch. In my case, I did not care for the chaulky look that developed after using the product.... literally white and powdery, laying on the driveway. However, if that is a product you prefer, and you have had results to your liking, I would go ahead and use it. Also, using my current method of scrubbing the tires does not create a shiny look... just great looking whitewalls
