That's what I always used too.
I use an orbital sander with 150-220 grit. Takes less than a minute a tire. Be careful to keep the sander flat on the letters and don't hit the sidewalls. Then spray on some tire shine.
I dont know if it would work on tires but we used to use Coca cola to remove the rust stains in the toilets in the Marine Corps. I might try it on the old tires on my project car and let ya know. But I wont be able to try until friday.
They yellow cause of the shiny stuff and the air that seeps out of the rubber. BFG's are famous for this. Wesleys Bleech White works very well. Spray it on, scrub it, wipe it.
I use comet with bleach and a tire brush and a good rinse. The letters turn nice and white.
At my shop we use the brush with cooper bristels, just spray tire cleaner on the lettering and use the brush wont take long. Put a little water on the brush 1st also. Do not use Armorall on your tires turns them brown real fast.
I have used soft scrub since about '87.
That's what I have used for years, and it has worked great for me.
Use a wire brush, Thats what I have always used on white letters and wide whites.
I used to build tires for a living and knowing how the white lettering/white wall is built into the tire, the comment about an orbital sander is the best advice.
At the manufacture we used a grind stone to clear up any blemishes. Same premise as the orbital sander.
