jrhaile,

I use Griot's Rubber Cleaner for the direct cleaning of grime off the tires. Then I bring back the shine with with there vinal and rubber dressing. It has been sucessfull in cleaning up tires that have been in very bad shape.

For the rims they have this really amazing wheel polish, which I highly recomend.

First I clean them up with soap and water like furious said, then I use Armor-all's tire foam, u just spray it on and it shines the tires up like no other!

Spray on EAGLE'S TIRE/WHEEL Cleaner before you start washing your car.
By the time you get back the first wheel/tire that you sprayed, use a brush to clean the tire/wheel and then rinse off. Proceed to the next tire. After all four clean the rest of your car.

ive been a meguiars fan but Eagle's Tire/Cleaner (orange bottle) is hte BEST!

My reccomendation is Wet Shine tire spray... I have tried a few and this is definately the best one because you can choose the shinyness. You can make it a dull clean look, or a deep shine. Its perfect

everytime i wash my baby i cover my tires in castrol super clean(really, really mean degreaser) and scrub them with a brush and rinse them immediately. follow that up with some oil base tire shine and you're golden.

Flame away..

I just tried the Turtle Wax Tire Wax and it has definitely lasted a long time, even after a pseudo-wash. mmmmm shiny tires...

Not sure how it compares to the meguiars.
