    I’ll just blow dry them after I do my regular foam wash and PolyGloss, then(if necessary), treat them with 1Z Nextzett Vinyl and Rubber.

    Does your label say "New Formula"? Just curious.

    Mine says “New Enhanced Formula”. I bought this for my father for Father’s Day so I didn’t get the Concentrated Formula but it was an option when I bought this gallon.

    The last bottle I purchased in 2018 had the new formula on it. I purchased it form Autopia.

    Ah, interesting! That works OK for me on the wheels/etc. but not the tires...I guess I might be a little more Autopian about it than I thought. Or, perhaps more likely, your shampoo/water/dirt-on-tires situation is just different from mine (and I sure bet you don`t let `em get as bad between washes as I do ).

    Wouldn`t a good dish washing liquid work just as well on the tires?

    Re: Tire Cleaning

    I use Adam`s Tire & Rubber Cleaner.

    For my cars I am also using the power scrubbing method Mike Phillips recommends. I clean the tire using a brush attached to my PC, rinse and clean it again. That usually gets it a nice matte finish, and adding dressing (just switching from VRT to CarPro PERL) makes it look even better.
    As for maintenance, I will do a full cleaning every 3-4 washes, but mostly go over the tires with left over rinseless wash solution - wash the car first, then do the wheels with a soft wheel brush, then the tires with a stiff bristle brush.

    You need something cordless to clean your tires.

    IME the Dawn we use is pretty lousy for anything automotive-related (in this case, it might be a matter of our brake pads). And it`s a foamy PIA to rinse (maybe because of our water) compared to the GG Rubber Cleaner, which rinses off very easily.

    I`m not hating on Dawn, sure never had it do any damage to anything, but we just use it for dishes and as a kitchen hand soap (and it`s pretty mediocre for hands too, regardless of how well it degreases baby ducks ).

    Re: Tire Cleaning

    What is the easiest way? I don’t have a lot of energy so tires is one of the things that falls by the way side.

    If your going to scrub them use a drill brush.
