Brown Ring on My Rubbers

Okay, now that i got your attention....i have Nitto Dura-Grapplers on my truck. Everytime i clean my tires and they dry...the side walls are a copperish brown color, like they are dirty. The only way to hide the brown ring is to rub tire gel on it. Is there any cleaner out there that will clean the tire down to black rubber and get rid of the brown ring. Thanks for your help

Some tire gels and sprays will actually do that to tires. Not sure if its breaking down the rubber compound or if its something in the actual gel. I've also noticed it only happens to some tires as I've used the same stuff on several different cars and noticed that some brown and others don't.

I only use regular armor all on my tires. I prefer the new tire look vs the shine, especially on trucks.

I dont know what auto stores are in your area, but ive used the advance auto parts brand tire cleaner. It comes in a spray bottle like windex and it works just as well as the wesleys bleech white stuff.

I can attest to the Westley's Tire Bleche. I usually do the tires first when I wash the truck. I spray the tires, let 'em soak, spray again (lightly the second time) and then scrub with a good stiff nylon brush, then spray off. Then wash/dry the truck. By that time, the tires are dry enough to apply dressing.
