Tyre Maintenance

How to clean your tyres?

Clean the tyres with plenty of water with, at the most, only a small amount of dishwashing liquid or liquid soap. Never use brake cleaner, benzene, acetone, thinning solutions or similar, as this will damage the tyres. Wipe the tyres immediately with an absorbent cloth, if any of these substances accidently land on the tyres. 

Is it harmful, if the tyre or the label change colour?

Anti-aging agents have been added to the rubber in the tyres; however, tyres will still become brittle over time and eventually crack. Very brittle tyres should be replaced for your safety. Therefore, always avoid leaving the bicycle or tyres and tubes in direct sunlight or close to radiators. If not used for a longer period, e.g. in winter, ensure that the tyres are pumped up adequately and that you store the bicycle in a dark but not damp room.
