Everyone loves the look of freshly dressed tires, it really completes the look of the entire detail. However, not all tire dressings are created equal.

More importantly, tire manufacturers add antioxidants and antiozonants to the sidewall and tread to help prevent premature aging from ozone and weather exposure. Certain cleaners and tire shines can remove these important components of the tire which can lead to cracking and sidewall failure.
Just like my wife. You tell me i'm doing something wrong but you don't offer any solutions.

Do you have any alternatives?
