    Is anyone running Champiro GT Radial whitewall tires? They have 1 1/4 whitewall, but mine are turning yellow. Tires only have less than 200 miles on them and are setting inside a garage so not outside. Need feedback please, they want to give me another set but don't need them if going to do the same thing. Thanks

    Same here, they turn yellow rather quickly and I've never been able to get the blue protectant off either, they always have a blue tint to them. I've had them for several years now...

    They are known for doing it. Its not the white wall itself but the black wall around it leaching into the white wall. No fix and will continue to do it. Best bet is to wet sand the white wall with some fine grit paper and soapy water.

    We had two sets on two different cars, had the same thing happen to them.

    Thanks. Is that the only fix? And how often are you sanding it?

    We sanded them the day before a show. You would be sanding every week otherwise. Just the nature of this tire.
