An S.O.S pad works great on whitewalls and raised white lettering my Dad and myself have been using this method for years and it does a better job than using Westley Bleach White. The green scratch pads will have a tendency to leave a green coloration on the white.

AJAX/Comet and a scrub brush. I do this everytime I wash the truck. Takes off tire shine from the last time and leaves tires nice and clean for a new application of shine.
