    I have a set of used tires that are browning a little. My question is can I use adams tire and rubber cleaner and leave it on the tire? What I did is spray it on a towel, wipe the tire down with it, and then used a different towel and wiped off the residue. Now the tire has a deep black look again. Will this hurt the tire?

    Are you asking if Tire and Rubber Cleaner is made for tires and rubber?

    No just wondering if I can leave it on the tire without a full rinse from a hose.

    Why not just put some VRP on them?

    Spray the tire with simple green and let it sit for a few minutes then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse . The tire will come out nice and black then use your favorite wheel dressing

    Adams has one hell of a marketing team to convince people they need a different bottle of detergent for each part of their car lol. Put some Soft Scrub on a tire brush and scrub them. Rinse clean let dry and coat with a tire dressing of your choice /thread
