    Re: Review: TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat by Mike Phillips

    How long does the coating stay on in real world daily driving? Generally.

    Generally.


    I applied it at least twice to the 40" Toyo tires on the Silverado I owned (sold about a year ago now).


    I only washed the tires with a foam gun (car wash soap), when washing the truck, never saw the soap degrade the coating.

    Nothing lasts forever... not even you or I.

    Thus I "freshened" the deep, dark black shiny look with secondary applications over time. Usually 6-8 months or a year.

    I was very impressed with how my tires looked after coating them and also impressed with how long the coating held up.






    Note for my truck and this Corvette, for both I machine scrubbed the tires FIRST and neither tires had ever had a tire dressing applied to them previously.


    As always...


    Your mileage may vary....

    ***Update***


    The owner of this Corvette was at last weekend's Cars & Coffee Car Show. I asked him how he was liking the Tuf Shine on his new retro tires?

    He said, "Love it"


    I took a few pictures....












    I posted the above pictures to my FB page last night,

    Re: Review: TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat by Mike Phillips

    I’ve used this product in my last truck with great results. When we were living in N.J., I applied it in the fall, heavy cleaning then four coats. The coating held up well against snow, ice, and road salts. I would hit it with a Q.D. to rejuvenate and maintain.
    Once spring rolled around, I cleaned the tires and refreshed with a new coat....Great product!

    Hi Mike, do you think this Tuff Shine Tire Coating is capable of keeping a whitewall like this Vogue tyre clean or at least super easy to clean back to fresh with a simple soap & mitt wipedown?



    Whitewalls look nice, but in order to keep them looking right they require constant cleaning about once per week in order to keep the Mayo & Mustard looking tight. And when it comes to Vogues it would be great if aggressive scrubbing could somehow be avoided. Do you think the Tuff Shine Coating would be ideal?

    I'm not a fan of doing all the prep work and then coating thin sidewall tires. Just want to say that up front.

    That said, what I would do is TEST on just ONE tire. Then see how it holds up. If it holds up and the mustard and mayonnaise stays clean then do the other 3.

    That's what I did with the tires on the 1971 Corvette. There was the possibility there was a problem with the rubber sidewall on these BRAND NEW Firestone tires. The owner contacted Cokers Tires and Coker contacted Firestone. Firestone said there was no problem.

    So I told the owner of the Corvette we should just coat ONE tire and then wait for a few weeks and make sure all was well. 2 months went by before I could get to them due to travel and classes. The coating was just fine so I re-machine scrubbed the other three tires and put 5 coats of Tuf Shine on them.

    When the owner left Autogeek on a Friday night, he went to a RaceTrac store to get gas. He said some young kids walked over and said,

    Cool car! The tires look great!


    So test first and let some time go by and see what happens.

    Better safe than sorry.

    @Mike Phillips. Thanks for the advice, that sounds like the smart thing to do.
    As far as the tyres, if I were to get them for my own vehicle they’d be more along these lines, paired up with the original Cadillac wheels. I’ve always loved this look on a Cadillac.
