    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.

    Meguiars 40 is great....i use Pinnacle Tire Gel too.....both are great and Pinnacle gives more wet look and Mequiars IMO gives a really clean tire look...matte finish..

    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.
