    Carpro perl leaving white residue

    I have been using Carpro perl on my tiers and trim. Mixing to what car pro ratios. After the product wheres off it leaves a white residue on my tires and trim. I do wash my tires with Meguiar's All Purpose Cleaner - D10101 full strength. but i dont wash the mud flaps with OPC. What could cause this. So far not very impressed with perl

    It looks as if some of the dye/dressing properties are still on are still left on the tire, try using the product straight it also can be the tire itself

    Re: Carpro perl leaving white residue

    Looks to me like those white letters may be losing some of there coloring on the tire (note how it is stronger around the lettering). The letters look pretty beat up, some curb rubbing damage perhaps? I have used PERL on multiple sets of tires and never had such an issue.

    Re: Carpro perl leaving white residue

    Sayroger, I had the same problem with the plastic and tires on a Mini Cooper i applied Perl to. I was so upset with the outcome. I used the product just like recommended and applied in my garage. I switched to Carpro Perl after I had the exact same issue with solution finish on a Infinity SUV's plastic. Although Solution Finish didn't milk the plastic as bad as perl I was upset with both products. I would like a answer also.

    Re: Carpro perl leaving white residue

    I wiped it on them wiped it off. looked good until it gets washed off. I can't see using it full strength if it does diluted. any suggestions
