Default Proline krawler g8 tires white stain

I just bought some proline krawler in g8 compound and i see these white stainings on the tires. It wont come off with soap or even dishwashers. Never had this on my km3 or hyraxs. Wonder what it is..? Did i get a old tires?
Did anybody had same staining?

Cant seem to uploads pics :(

I got some 1.9 Boggers from them recently and they had a white haze to them that has taken about a month to wear off. I tried soapy water, tire shine, and I think muddy dirty water eventually wore it off.

The white stuff on tires is typically a wax like mold release, so tires don't get stuck in the tire mold when they are made. Simple Green helps remove it a bit better than soapy water. Ultimately use over time will wear it off.

The purple simple green and an old toothbrush will remove it. Spray it on, scrub, rinse and let dry.

I've found that process cleans the haze off quite well.

Cheers,
