Loafer dude - I bet thats the anti-oxidant oozing thru to protect and coat the sidewalls. Call the mfr of the tires and ask. I'd like to know what they recommend.

It is a VERY bad idea to use Armour All or anything else with petroleum products in it on your tires. If you must use a tire dressing, use something like 303 Protectorant.

Bleach White

I bought Bleach White at Walmart and it really worked. I sprayed it on, let it sit for a couple minutes and then hosed it off. Tires came out nice and clean. Great product. Happy trails, Joe

Is there a degreaser that is safe for rubber? How can I clean them? Joe
I have the same problems with my new coach. Thick greasy, dirty substance on all my tires. I took a soapy rag and jut kept rubbing and going through a dozen rags just to get 2 tires relatively clean! I had as much grease on me as the rags! There has to be something to cut through this substance without harming the tires...right? I sent a message to Michelin last night. Will let you know what they say.

Here is a nice site that seems to explain "Tire Blooming" cleaning and protecting tires. As always take what information works for you and leave the rest.

Here is the reply I got from Michelin on this topic. I replied that their suggestion does not work! I will see if they have any other recommendations.


Tommy the film should come off with a soft brush and mild soap and water.

Tire dressings that contain petroleum products, alcohol, or silicones will cause deterioration or cracking and accelerate the aging process.

We appreciate your business and thank you for choosing Michelin.
