Thread: Scuffed tires?

  1. #11

    Default

    My driveway is narrow and the curbs are high so I have the same problem. But I have never had an issue where I could not get a scuff out of the tire with a few simple steps:


    • Soak the tire and wheel with water so it is wet.
    • Spray the tire and wheel with a mild degreaser
    • Scrub with soft car wash brush (maybe 2-5 minutes)
    • Then I take my 3200 PSI pressure washer and wash all the degreaser.


    Now I have a clean tire and wheel.


    • Then I redress the tire with what ever tire shine I want.

    I use pretty much the same method as nakranij, only I use a medium scrub brush, on my rock crawler it's been pretty successful at removing rock rash, once in a while I'll use a green scrubbee pad if theres deeper damage.

    Just be careful with the degreaser and make sure it is not acid based. stronger acid based degreasers will eat away the finish on the rims over time. Some times I have had to go ver the tire twice (you will see the scuff lighten up) and then eventually with the tire shine it will disappear as the tire shine gets absorbed into the rubber.

    Seriously, Curky, you could scrub the tires down, as suggested, then hit them all with some tire wet and see if that helps restore the former uniformity in appearance.

    I have only seen them installed on old Buicks and Monte Carlos with moon roofs and loud stereos. You could probably put them on a truck too. LOL! Maybe a pair of those "grounding straps" that you used to see cars dragging off of their back bumpers... Now THAT... Is old skool!

    You're making me want a set of my truck ... just for giggles. With my lift and tires they'd need to be about the length of crowbars and would look totally ridiculous!
