Sometimes when you buy tyres online, or you might get them from a lazy tyre shop, the lettering on your tyres is blue... rather than white. What gives? In this video we'll take a look at what it is, and how to get rid of it. Hint: It's stuff they apply for transport, and it's easy to get off!


Oh hi, I guess you're probably wondering what I'm doing but also you're probably wondering why tyres sometimes come with this blue stuff on the white letters. The blue stuff is actually a soap stuff that they put on there to protect the white lettering in transport so it won't get damaged and look as good as it can look when you finally get the tyres on your car.
Now any good tyre fitter with soap will actually scrub it off for you like this but sometimes if you buy your tyres on the internet, [inaudible 00:00:36] they might leave it on there so to get it off all you need to do is get soapy water and a good little scrubber like this and that'll just take it straight off. Give that a bit of a hose down and it'll be like a brand new one.
That's how you take the blue stuff off of white lettering.
