    Re: Super Degreaser as a tire cleaner

    I saw the TV ad for Eagle1 A2Z tire & wheel cleaner and got a couple of spray bottles and they worked fairly well. The drawback is the expense.

    So I took an empty A2Z sprayer and filled it with SDG around 8:1 and it foams on and starts lifting the crud out of the rubber just like the A2Z commercial.

    Works well on painted/clear coated wheels as long as it's just fresh brake dust. I do one wheel at a time and hose off immediately after a max 20-40 second working time before rinsing. I'm going to increase the dilution to eventually arrive at the max bang for the buck ratio.

    What do you guys think of APC+ as tire cleaner? I am thinking of picking up a gallon.

    APC/APC+ is a very good alternative to Super Degreaser when you don't have something like the above situation. For regular "maintenance" cleaning, APC/APC+ work great. For the heavy-duty, nitty gritty, Super Degreaser.

    Re: Super Degreaser as a tire cleaner

    Hey Guys,

    I have tried:

    NXT Wheel Cleaner: WAS a great cleaner for weekly washes
    EagleOne Tire Cleaner: Works well for a consumer product
    APC/APC+: Works Awesome, Doesn't come across very strong, inexpensive.
    Super Degreaser:Also works awesome, Stronger, but not overpowering.
    Wesley's: Works the best on White Walls/Lettering, VERY Strong, overpowering

    * I have also tried Menzerna, Griot's, Zaino,and Blackfire. They also work great, but for the price/quality/quanity. Super Degreaser and Wesley's is still the way to go!

    I think nothing beats wesley's on White lettering and such. Sorry I came across like it's the only good degreaser? The Topic Creator's tires had white lettering on them.

    Super Degreaser is nicely priced and I love getting the Economy Pint Size of wesley's at my auto store

    Really? Eagle One Tire Cleaner...interesting since it has been discontinued for 5-6 years. How about showing a picture of your bottle?? What does it smell like it? What is the color of the liquid? Just to make sure we are talking about the same thing. I find it difficult to believe that you found that it only "works well"....

    Zaino has a tire cleaner? Really? Last time I spoke with Sal he did not mention that. How about a picture of that product and perhaps one of *all* of your tire cleaning products or otherwise... It would be nice to see what a such a young guy would have amassed for detailing supplies...


    By the way...Zaino does not make a tire cleaner....

    I was referring to Zaino's Wash/Cleaner. I know it's not a Tire Cleaner.


    But, You'd be surprised how well it works on all surfaces with simply a wheel brush compared to other car washes.

    Eagle1: I have been washing cars since I was 8 years old. I remember buying their wax as you dry back in the day . I don't I took pictures of everything like I do now

    Not sure why I am getting almost personally attacked Tim. It's almost like you don't believe me? Have you been to my website

    Also, has anyone tried Black Magic's new Tire Cleaner Spray?

    Are you referring to Zaino Z7 Show Car Wash? I have several bottles of it....

    In a conversation regarding tire cleaners, somehow comparing an extremely mild car wash solution with strong chemical cleaners is a little misleading... A car wash soap that is designed not to remove wax on painted surfaces compared to tire cleaners which are designed to remove road grime, used dressings, tar etc....see what I mean???

    The Eagle One Tire Cleaner is a specific product designed for cleaning tires and is not a "wax as you dry product". If you used it when you were 8 years old, how do you remember how well it worked? Point being, unless you are referring to the actual product, and have had something to compare it against at the time, your comment is again, misleading.

    My point is simple, if you are making comments about particular products, you need to be discussing the actual product and not one you think is similar or otherwise. All information on MOL must be accurate and suggesting/implying to people that you have tried a Zaino "tire cleaner" when in fact you were using their car wash soap and then compare it to Super Degreaser (an engine degreaser!) or other strong cleaners, is extremely misleading.

    There is no personal attack, but rather a correction of your misinformation. I have looked at your website and see that you are making a very good attempt at entering into the detailing world! Keep at it!

    There is no such thing as NXT Wheel Cleaner, are you referring to the discontinued NXT Tire Cleaner? I have a few cans of this left and only use it on special occasions. Any chance you could show us just to let us know we are on the same page? since I am pretty sure there is no such thing as NXT Wheel Cleaner???

    The original topic of this thread was Super Degreaser being used as a tire cleaner. In all fairness, you shouldnt be comparing a quality car wash shampoo designed not to strip wax from the finish of your vechile to a degreaser such as Super Degreaser or even Bleche Wesleys Tire Cleaner, just as Tim has already stated.

    What does Eagle One Wax as your dry have to do with this? Not sure how it relates to Super Degreaser, or any other degreaser for that matter.

    You have been detailing since eight years old as well? I just think that it isnt all that good for misleading and inaccurate info to be posted on MOL and its best to try and be as prudent in your comments as possible.

    I do not see any kind of personal attack here, in fact if anything, I see support for your efforts, though some of the information you posted is misleading as Tim says. Tim, as we all do cares for this forum and it's members a great deal, and just wants to make sure the correct info is getting out there in a way that everyone will understand.

    There is no personal attack, but rather a correction of your misinformation. I have looked at your website and see that you are making a very good attempt at entering into the detailing world! Keep at it!
    Like I said Megafast, I only see support from Tim for your efforts and Tim trying to correct some misinformation that may have been put out there. Let's not turn this into something it isn't.

    Thanks

    Re: Super Degreaser as a tire cleaner

    All I ever use is Super Degreaser on tires. Works great and works quick.
    If its fast, loud, and runs on a flammable liquid...count me in.
