New tires-Mold release white junk

What is the best way to remove the mold release on brand new tires? I would like to clean them before having them mounted.

Anything I may have laying around that works without damaging the tire? Thanks.

yea I usually do. just figured I could clean them real fast before they were all up in the wheel well and under the car. it usually stays on the sidewalls also for quite some time and in the tread between blocks.

My favourite tire cleaner is Eagle One A2Z all wheel cleaner (all kinds of different names and words have been added or removed from the product name over the years). If I'm dealing with the white gunk, I'll up the stiffness of the bristles on the brush and crank up the elbow grease. If not mounted, they may be difficult to deal with.

Griotís Rubber Cleaner and Rubber Prep - two excellent products for cleaning rubber; Rubber Cleaner is for regular cleanings; like a car wash for your tires, it will also remove the white mould release from new tyres.

Then, for more serious cleaning, thereís
Rubber Prep, is an intense cleaner for heavily soiled rubber tires, trim, mouldings, seals, and hoses. This gel rubber cleaner removes old dressings and road grime to prepare the surface for a coat of rubber dressing by getting down to the bare rubber
