    Re: Cloth fender liner cleaning

    There are tire dressings that are essentially paint. How about some for the wheel wells? Instead of trying to get rid of the stuck on grass, just paint over it.

    Hereís the dirty wheel well of the Kia.



    Normally Iíll pre clean it, but for time purposes weíll just spray the tire foam onto the dirty wheel well.



    A few minutes later, itís not perfect, but keep in mind I didnít pre clean it either. It does look better.



    And the good thing about using the tire foam vs. the trim detailer is its much more economical + foam has some ability to clean + the foam actually completely dries to the touch unlike the trim detailer. Itís not the perfect solution, but it might work for you.

    Re: Cloth fender liner cleaning

    I always park the car in the street when applying dressings to the tires/wells so I donít mess up the driveway
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.

    Maybe the little rocks getting thrown up by the wheels make noise on plastic. On the front it's kinda in the engine bay but in the back it's more in the passenger area than trunk so they do it that way? Idk, just a thought. I'd love to know why. I prefer plastic for sure but hate noise so maybe if my car had plastic all around I'd be complaining about noise.

    Re: Cloth fender liner cleaning

    I don't have the actual before pics but the 1st is after I leaned with tire cleaner and then a second time with goof off. The next is a picture of the tool I used to get it pretty much completely clean and a shot of the result. If it woked on road paint that had been on for over six months I am shre it would clean pretty much any type of residue left after c good cleaning.







    And the finished truck. The only picture I could find that showed the drivers side done.

    I’ve been using tire foam for years. Picked up the tip from those forums.

    Another vote for tire foam. Look around and you can find it for a dollar.
