Tip: Cleaning Forester wheels, tires

Discussion in 'Subaru Forester' started by Charles Gillen, Apr 15, 2005.

  1. 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?
