Over the years I have heard of people using WD-40, CRC-556, and similar products never intended as "tire shine" on their tires, and suspect that the populist warnings may have arisen from using such things. I have seen CRC-556 in particular reduce certain "rubber" bushings and the like to sticky masses or goo.
Long before the phrase "gone viral" came into our everyday language urban legends such as this found their way around.
As posted above by Eduardo', if there were any truth to the assertion that tire shine products caused damage to tires there would be lawsuits and "be afraid" stories on the nightly newscasts all over the place...
Totally agree, I have been using tire GEL for years, with no problem, its the idiots who put WD40 on their tires are the ones who have problems
