    ok just put on a new set of tires, and a few days later while showing someone the new tires I noticed this tire lube has sprayed up onto the paint job and all under the wheel wells, so I went and got some soap and water, but boy that stuff is hard to get off, is there a degreaser or anything else I should be using besides soap and water?

    I never put tire dressing (I assume is what your calling tire lube :confused:) on my tires for this very reason, it just creates a mess, builds up in the wheel wells and when mixed with dirt, eck!:eek:

    No what I am calling this stuff , is the stuff that the Tire Dealer used when he installed the Tires, I ask them what it was and he called it Tire Lube. 2 days after the installation is when I really noticed it had sprayed pretty bad under my wheel wells and all down the side... I mean really hard elbow grease takes some out, but man..this stuff is tuff.

    Probably not, since they used excessive lube.
