Tried this on the white Porcs I have - thought maybe I could get the original rubber to be less er...amber and more white. Anyone have any ideas on how to clean rubber to get them looking less stained?

Tried bleach, washing powder, scrubbing etc....

:?

If it doesn't clean the tyres it'll work wonders on your patio! I use it on all my bikes and when I've finished sudding I use a yard brush to sweep water off the patio, bingo, no mould or staining or anything, Mucking wonderful stuff! :lol:

Anal bleaching creme (I saw this on a channel 5 'documentary' so I know it exists!) from your local beauty palour. If it can make a karki starfish all sparkly then it'll work wonders on a set of tyres no doubt!

I always found that going for a road ride in the rain cleans tyres up a treat.
