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.

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.
