Tire Cleaner

Whats an effective tire cleaner that isn't high in bleach and won't fade the paint on my black SVE drifts?

I use Adams wheel cleaner. Super effective and is PH neutral.

Do you use a gel or a foam for the wet look?

I use a gel with an applicator. Sprays get all over the car

rims = soap and water and wax them inside and out when rotating tires. I prefer Turle Wax Ice which does NOT stain rubber/plastic

for the rubber I like Aerospace 303 which gives it a satin look not the wet look.

+1 on Turtle Wax Ice in the paste can. I also use that Meguires hot shine and love the way it sprays on but it doesn't seem to shine like other stuff I've used.

For the tire I use Meguiars. Before I dipped my rims I would use some 'extreme' tire cleaner from Armor All. It seemed to get the job done but I'm sure there are some better products than AA for your rims.

I use croftgate tire shine. Lasts a hell of a long time and can be used for any plastic trim. I did my wiper cowl and my interior with it. Also the weather stripping around the car.

For the tires, Turtle wax makes a tire shine product that is actually an acrylic that goes over the tire. It stays or months. I have used all the tire shine products and they all wear o in days bt this one lasts or months. It's a tough outer coating that goes over the tire and gives it a nice shine, but not a super shiny tacky look.

I used this stuff before and it was horrible. Its basically a clear coat for your tires, looked real bad...

Look into Chemical Guys products. Ive used a lot of detailing supplies and they are the best.

Turtle Wax - "Jet Black" is the best stuff out there... It's messy but it works like no other just like the "Black Box"

I use Meguiare's Hot Shine, but spread it evenly over the tire with a sponge right after I spray it. I prefer my tires with some shine, but not too shiny like when you just let the spray dry on them. Using a sponge also controls the drip.

Croftgate Tire shine is the best. Top knotch stuff and its killer on plastics. All I use.
