Cleaning Tires

So just bought and installed Mickey Thompsons on my second set of rims and the tires are looking kind of dull for being brand new.. Looking to clean them up as they appear to have been just tossed around during shipment.. I have a brush with bristles and was curious what you guys use. Just water and soap or some type of chemical?

Simple Green with a little water plus a bristle brush or Scotch Brite style non-scratch blue scrubber pad/sponge, like for dishes or pot and pans.

If you are not looking for them to shine but rather look new, when you are done cleaning them up go over then with 303 Aerospace. It also adds UV protection. The consensus out here is Armor All is bad because it has alcohol and tends to dry things out.

+1 on 303, but if you like the wet/super shiny look choose again.
