Waterless Wheel and Tire Cleaning
« on: November 23, 2010, 02:53:13 PM »
With winter and cold weather on it's way to many parts of the world, many car owners and detailers will be moving indoors or will want to clean their wheels and tires without getting wet.
Two great products for doing this quickly and safely are Spray and Wipe Waterless wash and Bold N Bright Tire cleaner and dressing. (Gel too) !

Products used:

Poorboy's World Spray and Wipe
Poorboy's World Bold N Bright
Poorboy's World Bold N Bright Gel
Generic Tire Brush
a couple Cotton towels
an old Microfiber Cloth


Here is the driver's side tire and wheel

   


the tire sprayed with Bold N Bright

   


the brush I am using (bought years ago)

   .


tire after being scrubbed

   


   


now I sprayed the wheel with Spray and Wipe

   


half way into wiping the wheel with a clean cotton towel

   


wheel and tire finished

   



on to the passenger side of the truck ... this time I decided to do the wheel first and then the tire ...

   


   

again, I sprayed the wheel liberally with Spray and Wipe

   


let the Spray and Wipe dwell for a few seconds and then wipe with a clean cotton cloth

   


This tire will be done with Bold N Bright Gel ...
the advantage of the gel is less over spray to clean up after ...
this is about the amount needed to clean and dress a tire

   


spread it around a little and then scrub the tire well

here is the finished product

   

if you want you can apply a second coat with a foam applicator or brush

   


I use an old microfiber cloth to do a light wipe and buff of the wheel when finished. Another note, this is only a maintenance of a wheel, those driving in winter conditions with salt and sand on the road, will eventually need to do a thorough washing to clean the back side of the wheel.

thanks for looking and please let me know if you have any questions

Maybe a dumb question but...
When you use the Bold N Brite, after application and brushing do you wipe the tire off with a rag?  :slow:
You can make money or you can make excuses but you can't do both.

not a dumb question at all ... it really depends on the look you are trying to achieve.  If you just leave it, it will be a bit more glossy than if you buff it.
I prefer to buff... I like a deep black look on my tires, not shiny
