Anybody got any suggestions on which tire cleaner/conditioner is best?

One of the posts below even suggested Pledge. Very Happy

myself I've used the "EAGLE" brand shine for years.

It is easily applied (most of them are), absorbs in and still leaves a great, long lasting shine. Cool

Yes, I've used Lemon Pledge on all the plastic and rubber surfaces of all my cars for decades now.......it works great and is super inexpensive.
On the dash, it doesn't reflect much light back onto the windshield.
On exterior bits, it adds a low sheen and being wax based doesn't attract dirt so no brown-wall tires look!

I buy it by the 3-pack at Sam's Club Cool

(oh, and it's good for furniture, too ;-)

I like the spray can foaming tire cleaner dressing. I use it on the tires and the inner fender wells. Usually the Meguiar's stuff.

It leaves a nice clean look to the tires, not overly shiny, just nice and black.

I never really left but since it was quite here and for obvious reasons didnt go to the "other" site it may have seemed like it! LOL


Glad to see there is a lot of activity here once again Smile

Thanks!!!

Hopefully, it will just get better and better every day. Cool

Please refresh our memories with tales of "daring and do" with your PTs. I REALLY enjoyed following your exploits "live" in your old posts here.

I know our new members will enjoy them like we did way back then.
