Best product to clean tyres

Hi everyone

I would like to remove the greasy tyre shine that has been left on my car from the dealership.

I've tried using some all purpose cleaner and a brush to agitate but it hardly made any improvement.

Is there a product that you can recommend to help me remove the old tyre shine?

Perhaps I need something more potent or a dedicated rubber/tyre cleaner.

Thanks

I use the bulk megs degreaser. Its good value being a concentrate.

MEGUIARS D10801 Super Degreaser https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B0006SH4..._AJrNzbR2T6D1V

As long as you give it a thorough rinse after, a cheap alternative would be fairy liquid. You just need something to cut through the greasy tyre shine. Fairy won't damage tyres.

I only use surfex now. Britemax is just as good but nothing I've found lasts as long and dilutes as far as surfex. I personally dilute it at 1:1 or less for tyres, and don't need a lot to clean them. A little water in there helps it foam up when sprayed
