Wheel and Tire Cleaners

So i've noticed two types so far, the one that really doesnt do any thing and the ones that when you foam up the tires, the foam starts to turn brown. I am guessing its drawing out the dirt very well, or something? Anyway I was using the ladder today, ArmorAll wheel and tire cleaner and it started to foam brown on me and so I scrubbed the tire and rinsed it off. My wheels were not very dirty to begin with, I was just getting ready to re spray my wheels with dip.

I noticed the tired looked worse after I rinsed them off. The brown stained on them. Anyone else have this issue? Is this BAD for the tires? Whats the BEST tire cleaner and why.

DR3 has a spectacular aura about
I know that the browning on tires is supposed to be a chemical in the tire itself that helps protect the tire from something in the air.
That being said I personally don't like armor all wheel cleaners. I've tried multiple of them and none of them worked they all leave a brown stain on my wheels. I've heard horror stories of people saying that stuff ate through the sidewalls of wheels over time.
What I've done to remove It is use an APC and scrubbed it off in the past. But now for a wheel cleaner I use turtle wax wheel and tire cleaner https://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B00IO...OEL&ref=plSrch. It gives a great foam and really removes a lot of crap off your tires and rims without having to touch it. I still go over it again a couple more time with a brush to get them really clean. That with a good tire shine and no more brown crud on the tires.

Yeah I was worried about drying the tires out...

Maybe I will just stick with soap, brush, and water.
