Has anyone ever seen touch-up paint for the raised white letters on tires, or for white sidewalls?
I have heard of this before but have yet to find the paint?

no need to do that.. hit them with extremely high pressure hose or lightly sand them... they'll look like new

I use a product that you can find in any parts store. It's called Bleech-White and it kinds bleaches or whitens the RWL on your tires. Works great, they'll look brand new. Comes in several sizes and a pump bottle.

make a paste of powdered laundry soap and just a bit of water, then scrub with a good nylon brush. it's not expensive and does a better job than any commercial product I have tried. good clean whitewalls/lettering really dress up any vehicle

I do the exact same thing as DAN, but i do the whole tire with it, and its a lot of work, but you could eat off the tire when you're done rinsing it!!!!

Appreciate the comments guys. This is for off-road vehicle #2, the one I like to keep sharp when it isn't hunting season. It isn't for joy riding on the trails like my jeep!

We used to use PPG's tar and wax remover #330. Came in a gallon can and it would cut right down to the white really quick. One wipe and it would be clean. Had to be careful though because it does take a little of the white off too. Thats probably why it cleaned it so fast.
