If you guys remember he totaled his car and got into a bad situation. He popped back in at some point then disappeared again.

Yeah I remember that. I keep a log of each time he pops in here under my pillow. I remember him saying he got really involved in detailing and then something went wrong and he had to pull out. Hope he comes back

Ordered a bunch of stuffs from t. Forgot some stuff so called in, he was really nice and set me up right away. I can use a 3.5" backing plate on my six inch griots correct? It'll help out with corrections so much

So I used Mothers tire and wheel cleaner. Idk if my wheels are suppose to look like this... The tires didn't look like this before. I am gonna go pick up some Mothers back to black tire spray and also tire shine.

Are they just faded from being used and the lighter color is where the dirt was taken off?

I am a complete noob at this stuff lol.

That looks like shit. Did you use the foaming wheel cleaner?

Get some good tire gel, not tire shine. Its better for the rubber.

Yeah, the Mothers foam stuff. I agree it looks like shit lol.

Tire gel?

---------- Post added at 10:48 PM ---------- Previous post was at 10:46 PM ----------

Just looked it up lol. What about Mothers tire renew?

Also, can that tire gel be bought over the counter? Kind of need it ASAP.

Sorry for being rude, lmao. Just look for something that says gel or something like that. It'll be thicker than your run of the mill tire shine.

According to the "Son1c synopsis", its a pretty good product, but "Son1c Synopsis" means next to nothing to me. I'd say give it a whirl if you're in dire need.

Lmao, you aren't rude. It looks bad, no idea why it turned out like that.

All reviews on the Mothers stuff doesn't have anymore say it doing that to your tires. I'll give the gel a shot.

Okay, your tires don't look 100% clean, mothers wheel and tire cleaner may not have enough bite to fully clean the tires effectively. Try an all purpose cleaner or degreaser. You can find Zep purple degreaser or Zep 505 all purpose cleaner. Fantastic products for tires and undercarriage, if you get the purple dilute it 1:3 with water and wear a mask if you have one. You don't want to breathe that stuff lol. But it will ensure a 100% clean surface each time, modded has nothing but good things to say about 505.

What kind of brush are you using to agitate the product on the tire? I use a soft face wheel brush or sometimes a very stiff tire specific brush to get them 100% clean, because if they aren't spotless the tire gel won't fully soak in. Don't use a tire spray unless you link ugly black silicone sling all over your side panels. Even a cheap over the counter tire gel will sling. I recommend optimum optibond. It's not crazy expensive and a little goes a long way. It's water based and can be used on plastic and rubber trim also. Trust me when I say if you buy the 32oz you'll have tire shine for at least a year. But if you need over the counter get me guides endurance gel, I believe it's oil or silicone based, so it will sling depending on how thick you lay it on so be aware of that. It does look good though.

Also just to add, if you rarely clean your tires or have never used a tire shine product the tires will look crazy dry, I've never seen tires appear like yours just from being dried out though, which is why I think you need a stronger cleaner.

Damn that's crazy! That thing looks awesome. So many limo companies don't realize the important of a proper detail, most just send it through the scratch factory twice a day.
