Thanks! But they are really BFG T/A's. I put black walls out and stenciled the Good Year on them. I've got reproduction Polyglas's on another set of rims for shows, but the radials are a softer ride for around town. Nothing beats the look of the Polyglas in my book!

Wesleys Whitwall Cleaner. Spray it on, scrub with a tire brush and rinse off. The stuff is cheap.

Wesley's tire white will not touch this particular problem. I have been using it for years. will not whiten the lettering on these tires.

So, I was thinking of doing the "tire sticker" thing, but I'd like to know more about how you did yours?

They must be really bad. Does Oregon use magnesium chloride, calcium chloride, calcium magnesium acetate and potassium acetate on the roads in the winter?

We have a guy here in Phoenix that has a vulcanizing process to put blue and red lines on tires. It's a portable setup, does the tires on the car. Everyone I've talked with that had the process done to their tires have no complaints.

About 10 years ago a "new" guy from some northeast state took over at ODOT for winter maintenance and some sort of spray was being applied to the streets BEFORE any snow or ice happened..

I can only assume the worst from this NON Native Oregonian..

certain sizes of Radial T/A are made by Coker Tire - not sure if it is Coker's tires that stay "white" or turn "brown"

just got some 245/60/15s & 295/50/15s and 2 were from Coker (they're all still blue)
