    Is there a trick to using D161?

    I've been using D161 the last 2-3 months but I cannot seem to get it to last more than a day or two. Just this last holiday weekend I tried again, applied on Thursday 7/4 (two coats, 1hr apart), did not drive the car all weekend. It rained briefly on 7/6 (still had not moved the car, however it sat outside as it always does). I came out today, 7/7 and its as if I had not dressed the tires at all. I could see if I had driven in the rain etc and the product faded away but in this case I did not.

    I prepped the tries by cleaning with Super Degreaser, scrubbing until no more brown and rinsing thoroughly.

    The tires are BF Goodrich Advantage T/As...I'm not sure if this brand of tire is notoriously bad at taking tire dressings or not.

    My wife's vehicle has Nitto tires and the same dressing seems to last ~4-7 days utilizing the same prep. steps.

    I'm kind of stumped at this point. Any tricks to using D161?

    I'm guessing that there aren't too many people utilizing D161?
