Default Probably wont use tire shine again

Mr. Clean (Dixie_Boysles) had mentioned my tires were "dirty" He had suggested I get some Westley's beche-white.

When I got the bottle I remembered what it was. My father use to use it all the time to clean his tires.

Makes the whole truck look 25% better

Before white letters all dingy looking.







All the tire shine coming off I would guess.






All rubbed down and hosed off.

I might give this a try. Is it available at most auto stores or is it a specialty item?

That stuff in AMAZING. Had the tire shine+dirt road issue last year, Nothing would take it off but Westleys. It could almost be considered the Simple Green of tires!
