    I didnt vote because I sometimes do, and there is no option for sometimes, i think a option for sometimes should be added.

    Good idea, now you can vote... we added "sometimes" to the options.

    I also use the car wash that I use, Gold class then I follow up with a dressing. I picked up a few cans of NXT tire spray cleaner but wasn't too thrilled with it. It kind of reminds me of glass cleaner.? I guess I just like car wash better.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    I have used many of the products that have been talked about in this thread with good results. My father is a long-time user of bleach-white. IMO it works well to bring back the nice black natural look of tires but not worth using around high-end rims. For the most part my tires dont get real dirty, other than picking up dust and road grime. So I just buff them off with a clean cloth and then dress them. When they do need a cleaning, I use a very diluted mix of Super-Clean. Works extremely well. The reaason why I don't use it all the time because I have some reservation about its ability to dry out the rubber or possible cause damage to other surfaces.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    I have used Bleach-white for whitewalls and blackwalls.
    Also tried 409, and dishwashing detergent with a brush.
    I don't really see a difference when done.

    To finish I use armorall cut about 25% with water.
    I wet thouroughly, going around the car doing each tire.
    Second time around I wet again, then wipe off excess with part of an old towel to get off excess and shiny stuff.

    The tires have a nice black satin sheen and look new when done.

    PS- I hate the thick shiny sticky stuff on tires.
    To me it looks stupid and it is dirty too!

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    I use (ahem) Eagle One All tire/wheel cleaner for just the tires, it seems to foam up and dissolve the dressing immediately for a fresh coat.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    After cleaning my Vogue whitewalls with Bleche-wite, I use a non Meguiar dressing on the whitewall and Hyper Dressing on the rest of the tire.......Works Great!
