    Tire cleaner, Wesley's Bleach White, Degreaser, Bleach?

    Just wondering what most people use as a tire cleaner. I mainly use wesley's but i am not dedicated to it if someone has some pros and cons for something else. thought i might use my citrus degreaser but i think it says not to use on rubber.

    I use Hot Rims All Wheel & Tire Cleaner. I just give the tire a few sprays, work it in with a brush, then rinse. This stuff effortlessly loosens dirt and grime form the tires and leaves them clean. The only con I could see is that it's acidic, so don't let it sit on a surface longer than recommended.

    I use APC+ on my tires, 4:1 for the first few times, but have switched to 10:1...but since I wash & clean often...I can get away with plain ole car wash like GC.
    I also used Super Degreaser at 10:1 on my tires, works great as well.
    Tires on all 3 of my vehicles look brand new, and both APC+ & SD are very cheap and economical to use

    APC for me, usually around 8:1 or so, and a brush.

    If I need to really clean tires, not just the normal wash cycle cleaning, I use Westley's.

    The stuff just plain works. But I am curious if it is/has changed. The bottles now say "Black Magic," seems the name has been sold.

    I love Westley's Bleche-Wyte, I think its the best product for dirty tires and tires with white walls/stripes, however I still do use Super D-Greaser and APC+ on some tires that are less soiled. Generally I save Westley's for cars with heavy blooming or white parts.

    I always used Westley's Bleche-Wyte, and it does a very good job on tires and white walls. I went to purchase some and the salesman at the autoparts store said they had a special on Blue Majic Supreme Tire and Wheel Cleaner. So I tried it and am quite satisfied with it.

    Like a few others, I use APC+ (at about 7:1) for regular tires, but when I get a customer with dirty tires I use liquid comet w/bleach. I tried it once at my parents when washing my car as I didn't have any of my regular stuff and I loved the outcome. It gets them very clean, just don't let it dry on the tire - it also works especially well on whitewalls too.

    The fact that I can a gallon of it for $20 also helps a ton for the business.
