Wide White Wall Tires

Can I put the front and rear tires on rollers to clean the white walls. Of course 1 wheel at a time.

Yes...I use them to assist with cleaning the whitewalls on my deluxe. I made a wooden block (routed to accept the kick stand end) and it helps a lot by keeping the bike a little more upright.

I also have the harbor freight roller. Works great as long as the bike is upright.
