Default Simple Green

Hi Guys
Could someone give me an idea what Simple Green actually does to the tires, and does it work on some tires and not other makes?

Is it this one http://www.simplegreen.co.uk/haushalt_09.php.htm that you guys use, if so how do you use it, wipe on with a rag and leave it to dry etc etc

Or is it http://www.simplegreen.co.uk/haushalt_01.php.htm that you guys use, if so how do you use it, wipe on with a rag and leave it to dry etc etc.

Your answers please

Cheers TCCFM

I just leave it on and let it dry if the track is really low bite, and high bite I wipe it off. Tried it on both JACO Blues and Xenon 28's.
Try to get the concentrated stuff. Simple Green MAX I think it's called.

Here's the good stuff. Most hardware stores should carry it.

i've used the all purpose one and its great in cleaning those rubber tires. used to prep my tires with these cleaners then apply sauce afterwards.

using the cleaners alone will make the tires sticky....i think it will work also for traction. haven't tried leaving it on the tires since it really makes my tires slimy.
