How to clean white markings off new tires

How to clean white markings off new tires

Postby tsduke [OP] » Mar 31 2012, 2:38pm

I have what looks like white chalk markings on a couple of my tires. Any idea what to use to get it off? It doesn't come off with normal washing. My dad's brand new Camry had a "P" stamped on 2 or 3 tires. It's like the manufacturers use the dud tires for OEM.

I should get a better picture, but you can see it at the top and bottom of this picture.

Brake Kleen works great too just make shure not to get ant overspray on your paint I would just spray it into a rag first then just wipe it off.
