    Who's using a Tire Coating

    The fad for me on Tire Coatings has long sailed. Main issue was main tires - summer - low profiles, coating chips due to my rubber bands...., uneven wear, etc...

    Getting ready to swap to summer shoes so the winter shoes will be getting a full clean, etc before getting stored away.
    Be curious is -anyone- here using Tire Coatings as a -must have- on your tire/wheel regimen. I think for '24 winter, I think I may revisit it.

    Waste of money. I had CarPro Blackout and it is no better than Darkside which I'll vouch for all day long.

    Re: Who's using a Tire Coating

    Just used Darkside recently. I like..

    It washes out on the gloss easily - as least in the snow muck it has received, but the product sofar is still there on the tire, even having at least one 2 High Ph Wash Chems on them, and at least one Wheel Cleaner Wash on them.

    I don't mind dressings at all. But for Winter Care, I actually wouldn't mind having 1 less thing to do.......and I think due to the Snow Tires not being Rubber Bands and having some level of Sidewall, my experience with the Coatings might be different than my former views on them

    Re: Who's using a Tire Coating

    I only tried one and the results were pretty bad. Never really understood the appeal.

    The biggiest thing for me is all the prep it takes to apply one. I really can't see spending a good chunk of time and specialized products to get the tires perfectly clean in order for a tire coating to work properly. I'd much rather take a good tire dressing and apply it in a few seconds each time I wash the vehicle.

    Just make sure you're not wearing anything -nice-
    You're in warmer weather though so you're probably in shorts and flip flops

    I got some on one of my nicer pants....this stuff does not wash out easily at all....
