Default Just did tires

It's not that noticeable but its there. It's on the tire, a blue hue. Kinda cool looking. Shows better at different angles.


Its a tire dressing with metalic blue in it. It's different but kinda of thick.

Can't really see your "blue hue" but they sure look good anyway

I find it ironic that the colors red, white, and blue stand for freedom until they are flashing behind you.

Looking good, but, do the new tires make your GT go faster or corner better...

Rash girl

Eagle one tire shine, Black magic trim and tire shine, Meguiars endurance tire protection gel. The one I used is by Black Magic and its called Tire Tint (blue in my case) and yes, it has to be good for about 5 additional horse power.

You are walking into my profession again so I can't help myself. Be alert with tire dressings, be safe to your finish and stick with only water based dressings. Many of the HIGH gloss ones are solvent based. When you use that "sticky" stuff, and drive away, it will fling all over your finish, and destroy any and all the work you did. Solvent dressings are not only hard to remove, but in doing so you will removed your wax/sealer as well. Just a word of caution. One of the brands you mentioned is a slovent based I know for sure.

Just driving through my neighborhood I have already noticed that. It splattered on the lower half of the car already. A mess. Will be taking it off first thing in the morning. I have a feeling it will take a few tries. Thanks for the info. Any suggestions for a good tire cleaner?

bigdogdad, I use Meguiars endurance tire protection gel and have no problem with splatter. They have 2 types, one for normal looking tires and one for extra shiny ones. just my .02

ahhh ok, just checkin.

i've used the "silver" black magic one on my old car. hated it, waste of money. it was sticky and didn't look anything like the pretty picture on the box. damn advertizing...

on my pt, i use the same as kgdptblue. haven't had a problem and no sticky crappy messes. plus it smells damn good.

Well I have to admit I just wanted to try something new and it back fired. Very sticky stuff. My usuall tire dressing ( and my usuall products for the car and boat ) is Meguiars and yes it does smell nice.
