How to Remove Rubber Scuff Marks From Car

October 30, 2023

Tire marks on cars are unsightly and hard to remove. They can also leave a sticky residue that causes more damage to your paint over time. This article will explain how to remove rubber scuff marks from your car with several methods that will keep your paint intact.

First make sure that the area is clean of any dirt and grime. Then spray the scuff mark with WD-40 multi-use product and wait a few minutes for it to soak in. The lubricant in the WD-40 product softens the paint and makes it easier to remove. Then scrub the scuff mark with a soft cloth.

If the scuff mark is very deep it may take more than one attempt to get rid of it completely. If this is the case then you will need to use a more aggressive method such as using a rubbing compound.

Once you get rid of the rubber scuff marks you will want to re-wax the area to protect it from future damage. There are several different waxes available on the market that will do the job well. Some are more protective than others so it is important to read the label and choose the right one for your needs.

There is a product called Rubber Off that can be used to easily remove tire marks from your car. It is a non abrasive cleaner that works great on paint and clearcoat. It is sold at many auto parts stores and is inexpensive.
