I use an interior brush from Asda (it's quite course - would never use it on my interior!) and just clean the tyres whilst doing my wheels, using the same shampoo.

I find Autosmart G101 good enough for most things

I use the following method...

APC, usually G101, dwell for a few minutes, scrub with Vikan Brush with more spritz's of G101 and rinse.

Spray tar remover on and scrub with a microfibre, you'd be surprised the crap this removes after APC, and rinse again.

Then a finally scrub with g101 and rinse.

May seem like overkill but it works

cleaning tyres?

+1 for the tuf shine brush. It's the perfect size, weight, bristle length etc. I might order a couple extra like BB said incase they stop making them. I also bought the tuf shine tyre cleaner. Really pulls the brown stuff out of the tyres. Can get a tad expensive using at every clean so only use it once a month or so. For maintenance washes I use surfex diluted to 10-1. Does a good job.

Link to the tyre cleaner if needed

I used to use a washing up brush, just the right stiffness and the design makes it easy to clean the bottom part of the tyre, cheap as chips too.

Yep I use one of the IKEA ones, does a decent enough job. Something a bit stiffer would probably help, might have to look into the Tuf Shine one...
