Anyone know of a good way to clean light coloured tyres, or specifically the sidewalls? I've scrubbed and scrubbed with soapy water but the dirt is really ingrained in the rubber. It's all road dirt from this winter, so hasn't been there long, but I can't shift it.

A run through the washing machine on a good hot cycle with powder should do the trick!.....

Washing powder in hot water in a bowl if washing machine access is restricted :D
The more powder the better :wink:

The latter might be better. Wire bead tyres - be a bugger even to get in the washing machine!
