    I've used about 20 ounces of 303. I have the tires off of the wheel, so I can spray the insides too. The man in the video says to just spray any rubber you see, if the tire is mounted onto a wheel.

    I will definitely update the thread awhile from now, if it seems to work. For the record, I don't actually think this will work. However, it can't hurt to soak your tires in a product designed to give longevity to rubber and plastic for as long as you can. And, no, I'm not worried about getting the 303 on the tread. That idea seems silly to me if the tires are not for a motorcycle, or bicycle. The tires are for a minivan.
    I did PM the fellow. Let's see if he responds. I will send him another PM if I don't see him post here. I would like to hear his response.

    If you want to view it that way, but the point remains the same. Just as ONR is not meant to extend oil life, 303 is not meant to extend tread life. You would need to coat tires regularly with a very durable/flexible material (think rubber) to come anywhere close to improving tread life by even 50%, much less 100%. Not discounting the guy directly, I'm just saying from a scientific perspective, and given how harsh the conditions are that tires are subjected to, his claim seems very unfeasible.

    If you were qualifying at Indy today would you coat your tire surfaces with 303? And he's in the wall!!!

    And no way does any rubber or tire dressing stand up to the heat generated on the tire tread even at 65mph on a highway. Heck, 303 is gone after one drive in the rain on my tires sidewalls, it's worthless as a tire dressing. Just a side note, I see my tire pressures go up by 3lbs after 30 minutes on the highway from the heat generated. So how is a rubber spray protectant going to hold up to the rpm's, friction and heat generated on the tire surface. Answer, it's not. I'm sorry but this video is perhaps one of the most ridiculous things I've ever seen posted on the internet.

    I am doubtful this will do anything, like someone earlier said one of the big manufactures would have bought 303 and made it go away. Because it would slow tire sales for them, if it did work. On another note if it did work, I feel one of the big manufactures would have bought and absorbed 303 so they would have exclusive rights to the product, treat the tires and sell us the "super tire" at a high premium! Just my thoughts.

    Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    I am gonna go out on a limb here.

    Two of the factors that influence how quickly a tire wears out are the hardness of the material and the friction it has on the road. So a softer tire has more grip and wears out faster than a harder tire. So, could the 303 somehow make the synthetic rubber harder and also reduce the friction? If so, you are trading valuable features of the tire for more durability. It is already possible to do this when you purchase the tire. Look at the durability rating for it. Some tires have twice the durability of others, Of course they will not grip as well. On the plus side, you don't have to waste a lot of money to dunk them in 303.

    Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    I have no doubt that there are chemicals out there that can make rubber stay healthier longer without dry cracking. There are chemicals that will soften the compound of a street tire (I have used them on kart tiresónasty). There are chemicals that will keep a rubber tire from blooming and turning brown with regularity.

    I don't believe for one second that 303 Protectant is doubling the wear rate of a touring tire, and keeping it from being used up in a normal amount of time. Anything that will increase the wear rate will make rubber harder, and that isn't necessarily what I want out of an automotive tire.

    Tire engineers will tell you that everything in a tire's design is a compromiseóa harder tire will last longer but at the expense of traction. A quiet tire will not necessarily be able to move as much water or snow as a tire with lugs, sipes and channels. Low profile tires will handle superior to a tall profile tire but ride very abrasively. You can't get one without losing the other (easily). It's physics.

    You don't increase the treadwear of a tire by spraying on a magic chemical, especially without hurting something else in the process. These videos are fool's gold.

    I donít get why this is so hard for people to understand.^ Anyone whoís used Hyper Dressing on a consistent basis knows that it will penetrate the rubber to the point where itís nearly impossible to completely remove it because itís in the rubber.

    Everyone saying ď303 washes off at the 1st sight of rainĒ simply doesnít get it. It doesnít matter if it washes off easily. The fact that itís been given the chance to penetrate the rubber is what matters.

    I donít understand what youíre saying here.^
    Are you saying youíd dress the treads on a motorcycle and/or a bicycle? Why the heck would you do that?


    Btw for the people going nutts about the idea of applying a protectant/dressing to the tread of the tire... People dress the treads on show cars all the time. I donít see anyone condemning them.

    [note for Custmsporty. That doesnít mean that literally every show car has tires with dressed treads. I figured Iíd make that clear before you take it the wrong way and freak out about it]

    Re: 303 Aerospace Can Double the Life/Mileage of Your Tire's Tread?

    I have hard to think it would extend the longevity of the tire threads to the double if any. The 303 aerospace I don't have and experience with but do with the 303 rubber seal protectant. And if it's have the same chemicals as that it's not layer something on top of the rubber but it will be penetrate in it and does some kind of magic to the rubber. The thing I could see it do is that it would renew a tire that has starting to dry up and hardens. And bring back some of the softness to the tire and the ability to work as it once did. But to see it have any effective to the threads holding up longer on a new tire is hard to see.

    I can share what my experience with 303 rubber seal protectant is. My best friend has a Chevrolet Caprice -70 4 doors hard top. It lived it's early life in Texas before exported to Sweden. The problem is that most of the rubber is dried out which is understandable on a that old car. I got the 303 rubber seal protectant for the door seals so they would'nt freeze as easy in the winter. And it's says to renew the rubber so I thought why not test it on the chevy door seals and see what happens. The wind noise was very high before and was almost completly gone after one treatment. It dries to the touch and transfer to the windows that lays against it. And it's holding up after 9 months after applyied. So something in 303 rsp is doing something that renew it. I would compare it to what meguiars #7 does on old SS paint. So if 303 aerospace share the chemicals of 303 rsp it will penetrate the threads on a tire rubber and do something to it when the layer that sits on top wears away. Does it extend the longevity of the tire threads? I don't know but have hard to see it do that. But think it could renew the ability some on a old tire is more understandable. It's more parameters that comes to play with a new tire.
