    I don't ever have an issue. Of course, I take care not to get any dressing on the actual contact patch of the tire. I mean, when you drive a bit, aggressively or not, the dressing will wear off of anywhere that comes in contact with the ground, obviously. Yeah, if you just start spraying like crazy, you'll most likely have an immediate problem.

    It depends on which vehicle I am detailing. My motorcycle tires never get dressing. My Camaro tires always get dressing, my truck tires sometimes get dressing.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    I wash the tires when I wash the rims ( no special cleaner ). Then if needed I will apply Meguiar's tire and trim gel (D163). I like this because it last for many washings and has a matte finish ( I do not much care for shinny tires ), I do like shinny rims. IMHO the only things that should be shinny is paint, chrome and glass, every thing else should be matte.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    Depends on the car and circumstances..

    My Daily Driver - If I'm doing one of it's 3 or 4 times a year 'details', then yes, I'll use probably a foam product... otherwise for weekly washes, no..
    Her Daily/Our Weekend V8 - If we are going to a club event, especially if there is a display, then yes I'll do the full on treatment... otherwise weekly, who am I kidding... I still can't help but want her looking good (even if she is going to work the next day) and I'll usually use a foam product..

    The shine is whats killing me. I use half a bottle of the spray every car wash, it just sprays too much i think.

    Re: Tire Cleaner Research

    ok, still not clear on what you doing. You say "the shine" is costing you a fortune.
    What is "shine"?
