I think the most important part of the cleaning process is the chemical you use to clean the tires I use Spray 9 or simple green. Make sure and use it straight do not dilute it and only spray it on the tires not the rims. Before I use the brush I let it sit for a minute. You should almost be able to see the white running off the tire. Use a good stiff bristle brush. Scrub and rinse with water. I don’t like to let it sit to long so it does not dry out the rubber. After all is done and the tires are dry use a good quality tire spray to bring the luster back to the tire.
I have the molded mud flaps on my truck and I also do this on the mud flaps it get the ford logo gleaming again, I also spray the mud flaps with the tire cleaner

I use Westley's White tire cleaner and a brass bristled brush to clean mine, then the tire dressing. Seems to work well for me.

Dow Scrubbing bubbles... Use it on a wet tire,, and it will melt all the road grime off. You wont need tire dressing after.

Ive always used Greased Lightning (it puts simple green to shame). Spray some greased lightning on there, let it sit for about 30 seconds or so, then take an SOS pad with some soap and water on it and scrub em. It will hurt your eyes its so white! Guaranteed to amaze ya! :sly: LOL

Thanks for the Good Word! I work for Spray Nine Corporation, makers of Spray Nine. I have used it for years, even before working for the company. Just use caution around the wheels. It is strong stuff and I don't want to see anyone harm anything. When done scrubbing just rinse thoroughly. If anyone ever has any questions about Spray Nine or other Spray Nine products give me a shout. Chris

Heres a second vote for bleech white, and the pressure washer tip. Let the bleech white sit for a minute or too, then powerwash away. Letters come out white as ever.

I always used a good old "Brillo Pad" w/soap. More work than the other methods listed however.
