Question

I wanted to make a wheel shield to help keep the Tire Shine over-spray off my wheels seeing as I have low-profile tires.  I got inspiration from Dan (TheWolf), but I wanted to make something hands-free so it would be easier to apply Tire Shine.

 

I bought a thin sheet of rubber, measured and cut out the size of my wheel:

I got a rubber seal strip with a lip so it could wedge between the wheel and the tire:

I cut out some triangle pieces so the rubber would bend and adhere easier around the edge of the circle:

I cut another piece of rubber to go under the tire and prevent any over-spray on the floor:

I'm very happy with the result, but even happier that I don't have to clean up the mess on the wheels left by over-spray!

I saw something on Facebook where a guy put some Tire Shine in a cheap paint gun and sprayed it on that way. This would work great along side a setup like that.

I was thinking that last time I used the tire shine. The nozzle the bottle comes with doesn't really atomize/mist the product. With a spray gun you can adjust the fan size. Might have to try it! lol

Thank you!

That's an interesting alternative seeing as the Tire Shine sprayer doesn't really mist that well.

 

Put a 2x10 under the tire to get that bottom section.

 

Just checked out the link posted... such a great and simple idea.
