Tire shine in aerosol


Recommended Posts

Would like to see your tire shine in an aerosol form. So much easier to use that spray bottle. Wont splash off onto wheels and you dont have to take the extra time to use a foam block to get it i to the little grooves and ribs on the tires. I can never seem to make it look uniform all the way around like I can with an aerosol.

I vote for something like this but in a simple spray.  

 

I have mud terrain tires that are a bitch to get into the lugs (on the side) with a sponge so a lot of the times I use the old school approach of VRT mixed with water but unless you knock it down with a sponge or towel it leaves it too shiny for my taste.  

I'd love to see a flat or almost flat look in a spray.

And yeah, like others have said, the aerosols are a government nightmare.  In and out spray was gone for a long time due to that.

I'm not sure if I need the brush, but I did just toss a MF block that I'm going to pull back out of the can and use for my tires.  The will fix one of my biggest complaints which is the foam shredding.  

 

The brush is nice but not only will it take me forever but I think it will result in a shiny finish.   I'm going to try the above video with my VRT and water mix.   Next order I place will have some tire shine in it and I'll give that a try.

I would not use the brush to apply Tire Shine to the entire tire, only the shoulder blocks that are difficult to dress (this takes under 30 seconds per tire).  The rest of the tire should still be dressed by spraying and leveling with a microfiber or foam block.

My sidewalls have a slotted design on them, I found using a foam brush makes it much easier to evenly apply the tire shine. The brushes usually come in bulk and I just toss them after a few applications.

There is absolutely zero possibility of you doing the lugs in under 30 seconds.  Hell, watch the video that you posted,  he spent more than 30 seconds just on 1/5 of that one tire.  haha.

Also, the video was for demonstration purposes and he was speaking to explain what he was doing and why which causes it to take longer.  As far as 'absolutely zero possibility' of doing them in under 30 seconds, I can speak from experience that it is absolutely possible, especially if the tires are clean.  You may use a little more product so it spreads quicker, but even with tires > 35" I have no trouble doing it in that amount of time when I'm in a rush (minus 6-8" across the bottom of the tire that I tackle later after rolling the truck).

I was actually just watching videos from, well lets just say a couple of "brothers" and the guy did almost the same exact tires on a Raptor.  He used a brush but he used the bigger flag bristle wheel brush.

 

Same idea but much bigger brush so of course that's going to cut down on time.
