I have a 2018 Honda Clarity and 2017 Chevy Volt which I bought spare tires for. I hate the rubber odor from the compact tires, as i have the tires surface mounted in my trunk. I tried a few methods to lower or remove the smell from the trunk. See steps taken below or on the video.
This is what i do for entertainment and your viewing entertainment! Some of the stuff are entertaining, while some are just plain silly. If you do anything with your own property or car, you do so at your own risk. Better yet, to take it to a professional.

Steps I took to remove the rubber smell from my car:
- Use baking soda ( https://amzn.to/32VPorO ) to absorb order in trunk.
- Vacuum trunk after using baking soda
- Wash rubber tire / mat with dish washing liquid ( https://amzn.to/2ye0WbJ ) and rinse
- Soak rubber tire / mat with white vinegar ( https://amzn.to/2Mh0GAZ) . Solution Mixture 1 cup per gallon of water . I used my shower stall, by plugging the drain, and pouring about 5 gallons of the solution in to the stall. I soaked each side of the tire in the stall solution for about 3-4 hours on each side.
- Wash off and rinse the vinegar with dish washing liquid and rinse.
- Place the tire in sunlight area for 1 day. Expose the other side for a 1 day in the sun.
- DONE. Replace the rubber tire or mat back into the trunk.
