I took this picture right before we started the LIVE DETAILING CLASS

We actually shared more tips, techniques and information in this one video than in any of our 1/2 hour TV shows. Of course I don't have the beautiful AJ to stand around and look pretty but if you want MEATY info - that's what's shared.

We're you using Tuf shine also on the tire?

I used the Tuf Shine brand cleaner and coating on the back tires.

I used the PBL Tire Clear Coat cleaner and coating on the front tires.


I have AMAZING before and after pictures to share but I have a new product to review that I must process the pictures and then write before EOD.



Stay tuned....

My test tires used the Tuff Shine and I did have reasonable luck with 6+ months on those tires. Yes they did get dirty between washes but using regular soap they cleaned off back to matte finish.

My only gripe is all the PREP work to make sure they tires are totally clean! Doing it with my drill brush setup and 5-times on each tire still is lots of labor and sweat equity. Worth it over time but the day you do a proper cleaning takes time. I think I have heard that is worth about $75/tire if were to do this as part of a detailing business. I guess the proper response is to offer it at a lower price, perhaps $10/tire and give the customer the brush and tell him 'get' scrubbing! Provide the supplies and let him do the first one by himself. Bet that many will walk away.

See, I hate that prep work! LOL

And do follow the directions on the Tuff Shine Coating, do not use aggressive chemicals or cleaners after applying this product. It will not last and I have a YouTuber that can attest to the lesson. They did admit they should have read them afterwards.

Hump day, and it's my Friday off!

I get much longer. But I apply 5-6 coats.

Yep - just car wash soap and water. You cold even use a spray detailer or waterless wash to clean the coating.

Wait until you get your rotary and the brush. It's still work but it's so much easier on you than trying to hold a drill with a brush on the end and it's so POWERFUL.





I think I have heard that is worth about $75/tire if were to do this as part of a detailing business.



I've done $50.00 so $200.00 for a set of 4 tires. With the cordless rotary it goes a lot faster. I like the idea of $300.00 better. :)

Even if your customer has the muscle and inclination - without training or watching the above video they would be lost on what to do and how to properly do it.


Thanks for commenting Kirby.

On videos/pictures that front driver's side tire done with PBL instead of Tuffshine looks a lot less glossy than the tires done with Tuffshine. Is it like that too in person?

It seems like a lot of work, even with a machine to do the scrubbing, seems like more work than I'd be willing to put into tires. I don't mind applying a dressing every time I wash.

Yes - but that was the goal. AND - On the driver's side I only applied one coat or one application, like you saw in the video. On the passenger side front time I wiped around the tire twice.

The PBL is supposed to be one-and-done. Faster and easier.

The Tuf Shine process I did takes a lot more time and some people don't like their tires to look like glossy black plastic. (I do)

Copy that.

There is a LOT more work up front but to me the dividends pay off big time. No messy, oily, greasy tire sidewalls.

But - that's just me.

As I walk out the door, I'll take a picture of some tires I coated at least 6 months ago for an all original 1970 Corvette.
