    Please add "Usually" to the list of choices.. "Sometimes" implies appathy. "Usually" at least shows that you're trying!

    Open question:

    What type of products have you used in the past to clean your tires?

    Myself, I tend to use the car wash I'm using at the time, (Currently my favorite is NXT Car Wash), but in the past I have used All Purpose Cleaner Plus from Meguair's Detailer Line, and now it's replacement, All Purpose Cleaner.

    Afterwards, I usually dress my tires if time isn't an issue.

    Extra!

    I usually use Meguiar's extra cleaner with a scrub brush and dress with Endurance or Hot Shine depending on how much time I have.

    I use the car wash (NXT) to clean my tires and wheels and it works just fine. That way the wax is not removed from the wheels.

    I only use APC (10:1) to clean my tires/wheels, and no dressings. I like the natural flat black look on the tires.

    I use "Bleche-White". Soak the sidewall with it, dip a plastic bristled tire brush into first bucket of GC wash water, scrub tire. On the RWL's I spray them again with the "Bleche-White" and dip a thick bristled grill brush(stronger bristles than typical wire brush) and scrub the RWL's then rinse thorughly.

    After emptying the first bucket, I wash the car then dry and spray on tire dressing. No-Touch works great for me. Lasts for a couple weeks.

    Two products

    I am NOT a fan of an all-in-one product (cleaner/dressing)
    I used to use Bleche White before I knew better to clean the tires. Use stiff brush and rinse. Follow up with Endurance or 303 Aerospace.
    Be Nice
