    Whitewall tip

    Those who have white walls, especially the fat ones like on my FLHRC, you knoww they can be a real pain to clean. Got a tip and thought I would share it here...The Mr. Clean Magic Eraser, yes that simple household pad works wonders on cleaning the whitewalls.

    There use to be a product on market from Westleys, Bleach White. It was by far the easiest to use. Do they still make white walls ?????????

    The Westley's doesn't do nearly as well.
    Seriously, these Magic Erasers are kinda little miracle workers for all kinds of odd jobs. Just saw they now have the same ones packaged different in the car care section at some retail stores.
    If there's a weird stain, etc. try one, you might be nicely surpised.
    For me, nothing looks cooler than wide ww on bikes, but I dig the old retro looks myself. Looking for bike products is how I stumbled upon this site and learned all this wonderful )painful) detailing info, now I'm screwed, I think some of my money for chrome will now be going for detailing supplies, argh!

    All the magic erasers i have used fell apart. Does this happen to you.

    Bleach whites works great for me so does megs APC and diluted simple green.

    Here is a side view of my white walls on my ancient park ave.lucky for me it is paid 4.

    Thanks for the tip Scooter, I'll have to give it a try.
    I've always used Bleach White with good results, but recognize that it's hard on the rubber and the clearcoated rims on my bike.

    Did you use the Magic Eraser per the instructions with just water, or did you use any other product?
