Satin Pearl White

Default Yellow spots near the tires on satin white pearl WRX

Washed, waxed and had my car looking great! Took it for a spin and came home to notice yellowish brown, what looks like splash from the tires on the side of the car. I didn't run through any puddles, my guess is the tire shine i used might have splashed onto the paint while driving.

I will upload pics tomorrow if anyone is interested. Some of the stains won't come out with soap and water. Any suggestions on how to try to get it out? A friend suggested a degreaser or even try shaving cream?? I hope this isn't stained on the paint! Thanks in advance guys!

Quick detailer spray should help, or just wash the thing again.

Next time, wipe the extra tire shine off before driving.

Detail clay should do the trick if it's not coming out with soap and water.

i found best thing to do, is take a crappy old applicator pad (that is clean) and rub the tire shine on. one layer at a time... sure it takes a little longer, but it help keep you from over saturating your tires and spraying it all over your car.

as for the actual problem at hand. my best guess would be clay bar. *shrugging shoulders*

quick detailer, all-purpose cleaner or simple green + some elbow grease.

Just checking if you noticed it while you were washing. I noticed yellowish-brown spots on my swp paint and it wouldn't come out with soap and water. Someone told be its just dirt trapped. But he didn't know what he was talking about(obviously). But yea it was rust in the paint from iron filings from either the railways or whatnot. Clayed my car (was pretty annoying doing it while it wasn't warm out) and the spots are gone.

^^^^ It is called rail dust. You get it from when cars are moved on the rail lines and your brakes produce it. I have a white 05 cr-v and you can see it on the lower portion of all the doors. It nasty stuff and i have found only clay baring or a light polishing compound will remove the stuff. It comes back quick though.

You don't need an update. You need to take it back to the dealership and have a talk with the service manager.

I already talked to them about the valance and they are replacing that at no cost(although it still pisses me off). I just got new oz wheels last week and I am going to the installer today to see where the grease is coming from. It is coming out of my tires??? Does anyone know if that could be like the mounting lube or what? The weird thing is it didn't happen until like two days after I got it done and after the oil change? Could the dealer have greased something and put too much on?.....hmmmmmm

....did they do a complementary wash and add a "tire shine" product to your tires?

^^I agree with Kean here. I would ask about it, and if this is the case then make them aware that their "tire shine" stains paint and they need to remedy it.

The chances of them greasing something during your service and it migrating to the exterior paint are very slim.

No, I wouldn't let them wash my car. I took it back to the place that mounted the tires and they seem to think it is the mounting lube they used as well. So last night I took it to the car wash and pressure washed the wheels really good, especially right where tire and wheels meet. Then I went home and wiped my car all down. There is a few stains but not too bad, hopefully they will fade away over time. I had the same type of yellow stain on my rear bumper when I took the bumper protector off and I think it has faded completely away, so hopefully this will do the same.

Now I just have to deal with the dealer about my valance, that should be fun!

Thanks for the help guys

Great, I must have missed the part about the "tire lube". They must have been sloppy with it or didn't clean up after themselves. Either way, glad you atleast found out what it was.
