Having said that and if the spirits got on your tire, they may make it greasy for a while. Acetone will get rid of that. But watch out with Acetone around some plastics.

Wax away.....!
Hot water will evaporate mineral spirits quickly. Go over whatever you're cleaning with mineral spirits and a brush, then hose down with hot water and blow dry.
