Have you noticed that your car’s tires are turning brown? This is because sidewalls can become invested with grime and brake dust, but it’s also due to antiozonant in the rubber. While this prevents tires from drying out, it also causes blooming or brown tires. You can use a tire cleaner to prevent this from happening, but it should not include formaldehyde or raw silicone, which can cause more problems with tire browning.

You should dry-clean your tires first with a stiff-bristled brush and then rinse the tires with a garden hose. Special tire cleaners are best to use, or you can try dish soap (as long as it does not include the agents listed above). After applying the cleaner, you’ll need to wait at least two minutes before rinsing off completely.
