Default Tire Care 101

A question about cleaning tires. Whenever I wash the RV I also do the tires with the same wash water. After they dry they still look hazed with road dirt (usually red given the southwest soils). Since new I've never done anything except the standard wash; no spray-shines, etc. since I once read that some of them are actually hard on the rubber and some often end up attracting dirt.

So.......what do you do to keep your tires looking good?

thx.

If the tires are dirty like that I use Black Magic Bleche-wite to clean them. Bleche-wite is fairly harsh so I put 2 coats of 303 treatment on the tires after they dry. Then 303 treatment every month.

I use AWESOME Tire and Wheel cleaner found at the Dollar Tree store.......for $1.00. Squirt on dry tire and wheel, wait a few minutes, then hose off rubber oxidation and brake dust. Caked on brake deposits may need 2 applications and light brushing. Works great for $1.00.
I think it is industrial soap, and also works well to clean carpet stains.

I apply 303 after cleaning to protect the rubber from the southwest sun's UV to help prevent sidewalls from cracking. And it makes them look like new as well without a lot of shine.
