Quick question. Are you guys using Tire shine on the rubber before or after applying the coating? I was thinking a layer of protection on the rubber might make it easier to wipe off if any of the ceramic gets on the rubber. Curious about what other people are doing.

I had Dressing on the tires prior to the Coating application and then another coat afterwards. I got no Coating on the rubber, the applicator was perfect for staying where I wanted it. The wheels I just did also had a ridged lip where a wheel weight could be hammered on leaving me a nice guide. On a rounded wheel outer lip where you need the stick on type weights to balance it might be a different story.

I did get some of the Coating Prep and Ceramic Boost on the rubber when I sprayed the wheel with those two, I wiped those products off immediately with no ill affects to the Dressing already on the rubber.

I posted this elsewhere but I'll put it here too.

Tires are off the wheels, I would like to put tape (painters, detailing) on the faces prior to having tires installed. Should I wait 24hours?

Another question. If wax and such isn't good for the coated finish, how about detail spray or Rinsless wash?

I believe it's been said that you can use detail spray, but may actually make the coating LESS hydrophobic.  I'd stick with the ceramic boost.  That stuff makes it so slick.

Gotcha. I was wondering what to use for light cleaning. Maybe just plain H2O.

For light cleaning use regular car soap and light agitation. They will clean right up.

in the video he cleans the tires with the tier & rubber cleaner, but it doesn't show him or have him mention rinsing it off. Is it possible to use just a a Microfiber towel to remove it?

I have noticed that some of you are on the fence about ordering due to having to buy a 50 ml bottle when you're hoping they will come out with a smaller one.  Well I bit the bullet and bought it as I had my car coated by a professional and yes he was a true professional.  However when it came to the wheel he offered to do them at $100 a wheel $400 in total of course.  I had to weigh the cost of him doing it or me.  Well I did it myself because I could do it way cheaper.  I have more time than money so I have gotten good at DIY things.  I do appreciate his work though as it did take quite sometime to do them about 8-10 hours.  Mind you I had never done this before followed the directions to a tee and also took off my brake caliper covers and did them and reinstalled after.  

 

I was able to get the job done for well less than half of the quote I got.  I did use a few older microfiber towels as you know they are trashed after using for this.  I however didn't skimp on the applicators I think the Adams one looked like it would work great and it did I needed to use 2 as it took a weekend to get this all done.  Those that are not familiar they will harden once they dry.

 

Side note now:  I did have a minor issue I live in Florida the home of humidity so while wiping the first rim off I didn't realize that I didn't get it good enough.  The next day I did a ceramic boost and it still didn't come off I was like o boy.  Called the Adams hotline for a quick resolve and got it.  I think it was Dan asked if I had the Orange Polish which I did to use that with a microfiber towel and elbow grease came right off to perfection.  Hope this post helps some of you.
