Ive never really cared to do the tire wet stuff, but since i got the new wheels and tires, it looks better with the tires being that dark rich black.


how the heck to you use this stuff without getting it all over the wheels?!?!?!

i tried holding a towel up there to block it, but still got overspray, and my wheels are very simple and basically a big mirror which means you see EVERYTHING.

I tried spraying it on the towel and wiping it on, but then it doesnt get in and around the words on the sidewalls.

anyone design a wheel shield for this problem?:ftard:

You can get the wheel shields at any autoparts store. It is now a regular item you can find anywhere they sell autoparts.

I use the McGuires Hot shine and go behind with a towel to wipe down the wheels. It is not as oily as tire wet, and doesn't sling off.

Put the tire shine on the tire first, then wipe the rim then polish the rim. Thats what i have to do because i too get overspray on my chrome KMC's

A sponge will work but it can get a little messy. The large pores in the sponge will absorb more product leading to waste and can leave small bits of material on the tire's side wall. Just swing buy any parts store and you'll see some foam applicators for tire dressings or wax. Both work well...

dont use the spray ones. Best is the purple thick goo that mecguires makes. Last long....doesnt splatter. Put it on a sponge...apply to tires and let it sit for a few. itll stay lookin clean
