I recently collected a car where the dealership had applied a tyre dressing that felt really oily. Tried the usual meguiars and autofinesse all purpose cleaners diluted and neat and after multiple hits neither removed it completely. Tried IPA and Carpro eraser, TFR's and pH nuethr and aggressive wheels cleaners. In the end I tried a tar and glue remover and that worked first time.

As said above, Surfex at 10:1.

Its formulated as a degreaser, rather than an APC, so it works fantastically well on tyres to bring off old dressings and all the brown surface gunk.

Surfex is also a fantastic all-rounder that is worth having to hand, because it just does so many cleaning tasks very well, when APC just isnt working.

Its genuinely epic stuff and great value because its water dilutable.

Agree with Surfex although I use it at 5:1 for tyres
