Tip: Cleaning Forester wheels, tires


Charles Gillen

Our '03 Forester XS has only about 12k miles on it, but during my recent
Spring cleaning I found plain old brass polish did a better job cleaning
grime off the alloy wheels than the bug/tar spray I tried first.

The raised white lettering on my stock Geolandar tires was dirty, but
dishwashing soap and a toothbrush failed to make much improvement. The
quick and dirty solution was to spray the lettering with bug/tar remover,
scrub with a kitchen pot-scrubber, and wipe off with an old cotton sock.

Any comments, or other cheap ways to do these same jobs?
