I have Toyo tires on my Motorhome. I got a little to close to the curb, and now I have shallow scratches on the wall of them. Can I buff or sand them out and still have them be glossy when I dress them?https://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190321/6acc4c5ee0aa881afa3644933c18ef51.jpghttps://uploads.tapatalk-cdn.com/20190321/a6222786a27958afe6474aa9185529b3.jpg

Rubber, much like plastic, is difficult to remove imperfections and impossible to retain OG finish.

Id let that go through to the keeper mate, youre the only bro noticing.

I got a little to close to the curb, and
now I have shallow scratches on the
wall of them.

RE: Shallow scratches
•IMO:
-Buffing/sanding? No.
-Instead: it might be best to ‘hide’ them.

Remove the tire from the wheel; then
remount it with the blemished side of
the tire now on the inboard side of the
wheel: Out of sight...out of mind.

Note:
Don’t forget to have it balanced
before it’s put back on the vehicle.
