At the bus depot we brushed ordinary synthetic black paint on bus tyres
thinned down so much with white spirit it was almost the consistency of
water, because of the overthinning it lost it's gloss and dried to a
nice clean matt black finish.
On small car tyres an effective way of cleaning and bringing back the
black look it to scrub the tyre in cellulose thinners this tends to
remove the dirty grey look and restores the colour, well almost
However you can buy ready made tyre black.
