I want to try the Adams tyre and rubber cleaner, but I think what makes this so special over a APC.

It’s so easy to use, just spray on it then starts to turn brown and after a couple of mins and quick scrub with a brush then rinse and that’s it. Tires then look brand new with a deep Matt black finish. There’s not even any need to add anything more if you don’t want to but I finish off with either Adams VRT or Adams tyre shine

If I'm not right in saying the Mother Tyre Renew is cheaper than the Adams and does the same job??!!

The answer is nothing. At least that was the conclusion I came to from testing it against a good degreaser/APC.

I've never had the same results from an APC than I have from a dedicated tyre cleaner

Great on tyres, door jams, plastics etc.

Mix it 50/50 and its great for dried on bugs too!!

Available in Tesco and other shops.

Try surfex neat or 1:1 with water dchapman and see how much it removes in comparison. I done two tyres and alternated the order in which both where used. On the 2nd clean both removed little to nothing judging by the foam colour which to me tells me both cleaned just as well as each other. Difference is Surfex is massively cheaper and can be diluted a little without losing performance when compared to a neat rubber cleaner.

I have used 3 different APC's before on tyres (admittedly not Surfex) and not had as easier ride than I have with Mothers renew

But then again everyone has their own ways and methods

Just my findings mate using both surfex and adams. Surfex is about as potent as APCs get tbh, it's a bargain for roughly £15 for 5l.
