White Letter Raised Tires

Question, what is the best product to clean white letter raised tires with? The letters are not solid they are out lined. Back in the day when I had them they were solid letters and I used a brillo pad. One thing I can't stand is a nice shiny truck with dirty raised lettering. It's just a thing with me.

I love the OWLs (Outlined White Letter), but like you, I can't stand them dirty. I use Comet or Ajax with a stiff bristle brush.

When I replace the tires on my truck, I hope to go with some LT OWLs to dress it up a bit.

Thanks, I know that a brillo pad would mark up the tires around the letters, I will try the Ajax and or comet.

I've used Westley's Bleche-white Whitewall Cleaner on my raised lettered tires on my Durango. Wally World sells it and it really works well.

X3. Nothing works better than Westley's. Plus minimal effort.

X4 I've used Westley since I was a kid and had real wide whites on my '58 Impala! Still use it on the raised white letters.
