    Recommend me some tire cleaners that won't brown my tires please!

    Looking for some recommendations of tire cleaners that won't brown my tires after they dry. The tires are Michelin Premier LTX if that would matter.

    Right now I'm just using car wash water from the wash bucket and a tuf shine brush. It works ok but I know they can be cleaner. At least with it they don't brown.

    thanks!

    Tire cleaners remove browning - they don’t add it.

    The browning is called blooming It’s a natural process.

    Go to Skynet and type in,

    Tire blooming

    Tuff shine Tire leaner is my weapon of choice.

    I personally have the Meguiars non acid wheel and tire cleaner and it does a very good job for myself and my family as we live on a dirt road. I clean them till the foam is white (sometimes it takes three brushings with rinsing in between to get there) and then top the dry tire with Meguiars Hyper Dressing and I think the results are fantastic.

    Tuf shine tire cleaner( will will remove all brown by the second iteration, if not after the first).

    Follow this up with tuf shine clear coat. This stuff lasts for months. Once this is applied, simply wash your tires with soap and water and your tires will be perfectly black until the clear coat wears away.

    If to don't have forearms like popeye,. You can buy a drill brush to initially clean your tires in 1/10 of the time.

    You only have to this initial cleaning once as long as you maintain the clear coat protection on the tire.
