TW wheel cleaner in the flourescent green bottle works very well. The Meguiars foam works well and lasts a while. The non-foaming spray lasts even longer, but doesn't clean the tires as well as the foam.

Anyone ever try scrubbing bubbles on their wheels? Works like a charm!

That's a pretty narrow list, with no 'Other' option?
I've used Meguiars Endurance liquid, applied with a sponge applicator for years. It looks wet but not shiny, and doesn;t sling off.
I don't use a rim/tire cleaner; I just do a good job when washing the car, and follow up with a quick wipe of Mothers Showtime instant detailer after the tire dressing.

The best pre-cleaner is a little Tornado 50. Takes brake dust and road grime right off the rims and sidewalls.

I will share my top secret tire cleaning method to people here only... Shh dont tell anyone... lol

I Use Wesleys Tire Bleach _weather you have white letters or not it cleans them black! then dry and apply a liberal amount of Stoner Trim SHine... Very hard to find but if you find it get a case. drys fast gives a good sheen not super glossy but like new tires.

I always get compliments. and it stays nice for at least a weak.
