Tips for Cleaning Your Tires

When it comes to cleaning your car, tires require special considerations, specifically to avoid tire blooming or “brown tire.” As tires collect all kinds of debris and dust, they can start to change colors, but it’s also because of antiozonants, which is added to rubber to prevent them from drying out. If you clean your tires once a month, you can avoid this issue, but it’s also important to choose the right cleaners and adhere to a process.

Tire blooming is caused by irritants to the sidewall that are left there due to cleaners with silicone, as well as debris and brake dust. When cleaning your tires, you must use a solution that is specially formulated for rubber, as it cannot include silicone or formaldehyde. You must hose down tires beforehand with clean water and then apply a cleaning solution. After letting the cleaner sit for a few minutes, you can scrub down with a bristled brush or use a high-pressure hose to ensure that it’s completely clean.
