What is the best way to remove the blue coating on WSW tires without harming the white side wall? I would like to hear from experience rather than experimenting with home-brew chemicals. thanks

I have always just scrubbed them with kitchen cleanser, like Comet or Ajax. Some of the thick spots of blue take a far amount of scrubbing, but always got the job done for me.

Just wash them with soap, water and a soft brush

That's it? Just household cleaners, or do nothing until it flakes off? That is simple. Thanks.

It's just a water based coating to keep them from getting scuffed black with another tire during shipment etc. It usually just comes right off with plain water, but soap helps.

Yes, people do buy WSW tires for classic cars and muscle cars. WSW or RWL.
