White Tire Paint

I painted the tires on my TW with a rubberized paint and now have WIDE WHITES. I'm very pleased with the results. The stuff is special ordered from Iceland. For tandems you will need 2 cans. I like the way the it goes on thinned a bit. Toulene is the only recommended thinner. A can is $20 and shipping for 1-4 cans is $20. The main problem in applying is chemicals in the rubber tend to bleed through. That problem is largely solved by cleaning the tire with Westley's Bleche-Wite which is recommended by the manufacturer and I found at NAPA for a few bucks. Here's the poop:

I miss whitewalls. Been using Westley' Bleche-Wite for over 30-years as it is an excellent tire cleaner. And wheelwell cleaner.

I haven't seen whitewall paint in I don't know how long. Hope it works well for you.

My trailer would be "original" with small stripe whitewalls, too bad trailer tires aren't made this way any more.
