    Re: Poor performance by optimum tire protection?

    I wonder how resistant to chemical the coating is.

    Do you think car soap is good enough to clean it or I would really have to pull out the degreasers? Can't really by stuff right now from Autogeek like Powerclean since I can't cross the country, gotta do with what I already have. But since powerclean is safe on everything really I assume I should dillute my stuff way more to match it's usage locations.

    Re: Poor performance by optimum tire protection?

    I am not certain on Optimum Tire Protection but have used similar products from Tuff Shine and bottle of PBL Tire Clear Coat. Most similar recommend the use of only car wash soap on the tires themselves. Use of the more aggressive cleaners will reduce the coating life. Tuff Shine states that and I have seen similar results by a knowledgeable detailer (YouTube). He even admitted later that the instructions warned of using harsh chemicals.

    Poor performance by optimum tire protection?

    All I ever do is spray my coated tires with Megs D114 rinseless wash and rinse with the hose nozzle. Whatever little dirt that gets on the tires rinses away leaving a clean coated tire. I never have to use tire cleaner on my own car.

    Alright well based on this I think the coating is just not there at all. The tire was to new I guess!

    Second pass with PS brake buster dilluted a little bit I think: https://i.imgur.com/L0upQNj.png
