Good evening Marcin, I've already watched the video via your web site Marcin's hand painted whitewalls - video 3498837457  How's the paint standing up regarding the new rubber surface? we fitted a pair of Avon's to Worthy's Intruder over the weekend and there's a lot of pattern going on around the side walls on those tyre's! I can understand you needing to remove that to obtain a smooth surface.

There's certainly a discrepancy between the rear and front.
Rear:
hardly changed the colour at all. Chuffed to bits with it.
One thing that I noticed after two shows this weekend, while I was washing them, was that hair thin cracks appeared all over the surface. Much to my relief though, all of them disappeared which I can only attribute to the rubber compacting tiny bit after standing in cold garage.

Front:
I've noticed that I will have few issues with the front tyre as it's releasing much more chemicals, perhaps due to deeper grinding to get the textures off. The two-tone effect seeps through the paint, leaving internal ring whiter than the external.
Front has 4 coats in total now and I'm adamant that another one won't solve the issue...or maybe just for few days.(like it happened with 4th)
That said, the whitewall restorer I purchased from Mr Whitewalls works wonders and once I get my ass in gear, I will rub it in and the tyre will be pretty much as white as the rear...not sure what the mixture is but it does work. I'll try to take photos before and after treatment.
I need to put at least another 1000 miles on the road before I can start expecting the discolouration to go away... it's a rather minor thing and I'm not bothered one bit.

Overall, very pleased however not overly fond of cleaning.

Yeah I know what you mean! The cleaning and maintenance of white walls is dog shit! to say the least  Marcin's hand painted whitewalls - video 852880  I found that builders wipes (coz they're free from work) gets a lot of road grime off and brings them back to life, useful for de-greasing before painting too  Very Happy One thing I've noticed since having white walls is?, although painted ones 'yellow' over time, bought ones seem to go slightly grey! Just out of interest? has anyone tried 'baby wipes' on their tyre's? supposed to remove all sorts of shit!   Marcin's hand painted whitewalls - video 2740622253 Seriously though! they even remove crayon wax and stuff from paintwork!

Good video Marcin.  Marcin's hand painted whitewalls - video 3498837457  

As for cleaning them, what has worked for me is, I just use a general bike cleaner spray. I let it sit for a while and then give them a good brushing with a medium hard bristled cleaning brush then re-apply a protective coating of 'Simoniz tyre protector'.

I know a local man that swears by & uses Kiwi plimsolls whitener for his white walls, his tyres always look good.
