Got some WWW tires the other week and the front tire has a bit too much whitewall. In other words, there's a ring of intermittent white outside the intended whitewall surface. It look s as though when the factory exposed the white rubber (I understand that the white surface extends all the way to the edge of the tread) they scraped or buffed off too much. I've used cleaners and stiff bristle brushes and LOTS of elbow grease to no avail. I could paint out this small ring but I was wondering if any of y'all had any revelations I need to know about. I ain't sending it back cause 1. it's already on the bike 2. it took forever to get the thing and 3. I am not that much of an appearance freak anyway. Spend too much time riding to get hung up too very much. Thanks for any replys ... :)

My rear one is the same way. I just got it from J&P Cycles a couple of weeks ago. A black sharpie should do the trick atleast temporarily. Looks like Dunlop's quality is going in the $hitter. I'm not sending mine back either but it kinda pissed me off after I got them mounted and saw it.

Ive purchased truck tires with the white lettering and had them reversed and the dealer put some sort of tire black on it to cover the white stays on pretty good (didnt even ask them to do it go figure lol) might try there. Good luck and have a safe one. By the way nice meeting you at the haveme1 poker run. :lol:

Maybe just reverse your bike tires so that the whitewall faces in...:roll:
