When its gotta be clean, dont rely on simple green.
Like many around here, I like my white lettering on my tires to be bright white, against clean tires.
While, Simple green is sufficient for most tasks, its not for this. Nor is tire foam.
To get your tires, and your white letting truelly white truelly clean like new kinda clean, for less than half the money youll spend on those other 'products' there is no other, than OB.
OB is a commercial floor stripping cleaner and can be bought from a soap store. Look in the phone book. Currently, you can buy a 5 gallon pale, enough to clean THOUSANDS of tires, for $40. The stuff, truelly rocks. If OB cant clean it, it cant be cleaned. pretty much sums it up..you can also cut it like 5:1 as well...
now the bad news; cant let it dry on glass or it will etch the glass. Makes cuts in your hands burn... corrodes bare aluminum... I tried it on my engine bay, It was cleaner than when the truck was new, but 'hazed' my block... =/
It contains glass crystals, which when combined with stiff scrub brush, has amazing results on tires.
and its alot cheaper than simple green.

Westley's Bleche-Wite is the best, but you can't use it on bare metal wheels. Simple green works just fine for cleaning up tires, and so does Purple Power. You're just beyond weird and have problems going about doing things the same way as normal people.
when i worked at pepboys we couldnt keep purple power on the shelves, people really like that stuff though ive never used it. but agree westley bleche wite is best just dont use excessively or it can help brown your tires
