    Reason I thought they might be overinflated is because I notice your left front tire has an indentation that usually happens when tires run overinflated. Before recently I used to notoriously overinflate my tires and they would sometimes develop those same dents in them..

    According to ####, this car weighs just under 2,300lbs so 30 seems great to me.
    I also just went and looked at that tire and the side wall is fine. Must be some sort of glare. Appreciate the heads up though.

    Get a picture for me of the Polycrylic wheel for me.
    I have photos when I originally started (3/17), and will take photos soon, for a 1 month test. With that said, I do not want to publish here, since I believe it will be breaking forum rules.

    PM where you put them, please, thank you.
    This is interesting.

    I actually wonder about the tire thing everytime I crack the gallon open and see the blueish white.

    Re: Semi Permanent Tire Coating Face Off

    I wonder if mixing and matching different brands of tire cleaners and coatings will make a difference with the longevity. Yvan from Optimum recommends using the products from the same manufacturers for they are engineered to work together. I used the Tuf Shine system on the Buick in December and the tires are still dark and rich with a slight sheen.

    FYI I know the type of indentation you are talking about and Thatís just a normal part of the tire construction process.
