Sometimes I just want a clean tire

for the contrast in finishes, a nice satin clean tire...without the dressing. What do you use as a straight rubber cleaner to remove grime and oxidation...not a a wheel and tire combo product.

To get a nice and clean tire, try Carpro Eraser. It is used to strip wax/sealants off paint, but Cory from Carpro also recommends using it on tires, works real well.

TufShine Tire Cleaner. Its the only tire cleaner I use and it is the best by far.

Adam's Tire and Rubber Cleaner is my go-to. I'm actually experimenting with a new tire dressing now that leaves a clean, satin finish when applied with a foam brick applicator. Mainly for myself, haha. My customers almost always prefer a wet looking tire.

I got Adams tire armor and it works good and dries to the touch, one coat for a satin look and two for a gloss shine.

I get that “clean & new not glossy look” from the mothers tire cleaner. Then I follow it up with a tire coating, not a dressing, lasts six months.

What are you thoughts on the Gyeon? Better than PERL? I like PERL a lot, will last a while, just not long enough.

The wheel coatings work very well for me. They literally last six months. I also tried Perl along time ago, it’s just a dressing in the way that it acts....The two that I like are TAC tire coat or the guyon product. They are true SIO2 coatings.

Thanks for the info! May have to try one of those.

try some dish soap (preferably clear and no scent) and a kitchen sponge, rinse off, air dry.
Costs maybe a couple cents. Same thing for wheels, use a kitchen dish scrubber and dish soap. I wouldn't buy any special product to clean my wheels and tires. Good old soap and water is cheap and effective.
