Love the tan wall tyres , I’m using Vittoria corsa . Unfortunately they do get pretty tardy after a while . Anyone recommend what is good for cleaning them ?
Also any recommendations for other tan wall road tyres ? . I might change them up when they are worn

    Californian sunshine, keeps em clean and bleaches any discolouration.

    i use veloflex tubs, the tan walls get dirty from wet rides but just leave them

    some say magic eraser, not tried it myself though

    btw some also recommend applying tent seal when new to keep them clean

    for tubs i prefer veloflex over vittoria, but there's little in it, not tried their clinchers but afaik the materials are the same
    my bike - faster than god's and twice as shiny

    I use tan walled Veloflex. I also do a bit of car detailing/polishing. I use this car product

    When I get a new tyre or after I have cleaned I use this to protect.

    I find cleaning tyres after using the Q2-tire protection a breeze.

    Works on my Vittoria's

    Other tyre choices,

    Veloflex
    Challange (strada)
    Panaracer Pasela
    Conti Grand Prix classic (more brown wall)
    Specialized Turbo cotton
    Schwalbe Lugano (not sure you can get tans anymore)

    Likely more but Veloflex would get my vote
  • Thanks for the info , I’ll get some of the suggested Responses

    But then you have to have cheese on everything.

    I have Schwalbe Pro Ones with tan sides on my steed. Problem was had to source them from a shop in Australia. Was painless in the end 2 weeks to my door.
