    Tire/rubber cleaners?

    Finally finished up my Tuf Shine tire cleaner, and wondering if there is anything new out there? Is there anything local that could be bought maybe that works just as well?

    Or does it look like another gallon of Tuf Shine is on order?

    There is nothing you can buy from the major manufacturers that you can buy local that will last as long is tufshine… Stay away from the armour all coatings, I use the one they make and it was a mess…

    I was surprised at how well P&S Brake Buster worked on cleaning tires. If you’re interested in a combination wheel and tire cleaner, it’s worth a look. The price is also good on this one.

    Another option that you might be able to to get locally (O’Reilly’s, etc.) is Griots Foaming Tire Cleaner.



    I like this one because it works well and if necessary you can just wipe it off with a microfiber towel. No hose is needed.

    Tuff Shine makes an excellent tire cleaner. I also like the Pinnacle Advanced Tire Cleaner and Amazing Roll-Off

    Can't say there is anything new out there that is next level and game changing. Tuff Shine tire cleaner is what I use.

    Advanced Auto carries RTU Meguiars Non-Acid Wheel and Tire Cleaner in stores.

    Or else if in a pinch, Super Clean is at Walmart as well as Purple Power. Dollar stores carry LAs Totally Awesome APC (I've never tried this one).


    Honestly, most APCs and dedicated tire cleaners will do the job. I've used Tuf Shine tire cleaner before and I wasn't blown away by it. It simply cleaned the tire like any other APC. Same for the expensive Gyeon Tire Cleaner.

    Just buy what's economical. I just bought a gallon of Megs Wheel and Tire cleaner online for $25. After researching, its one of the most economical in a gallon (designed for tire cleaning). I had been using Nanoskin Multi Clean APC and it did a great job on tires @ 2:1 ratio. It used to cost $12 SHIPPED which was phenomenal deal! But amazon rarely stocks the gallon jug and shipping from Nanos website is way too much now, so on to the next which is now the Megs.

    I'm afraid Roll Off disappointed me. YMMV
    Treat it like it's the only one in the world.
