    I use a tire brush and the soapy water left over after washing the truck.

    stay off the road :D

    I used to wash my white letters with a brush and some softscrub when I used to have whites out. can't say it "kept" them clean but it did clean them when dirty.

    Use some Bleachwhite you can buy at any auto parts store! Spray it on scrub it and wash it off! Iv been using it for a while now and works better than anything else I have tried.

    Yes, works great. It can be used very sparingly so it will last a long time too.

    If you are using tire dressing make sure to apply it by spraying it on a rag or applicator (I use old socks) and try to avoid getting the dressing on the white letters. Don't spray the dressing directly on the tires.
