    Nope, no tire black. It slings all over the paint and makes a mess.

    Approved by Airbus and Boeing, works well even if your truck has been in the sun all day. Works very well inside too.

    I used to use Armor All, but it doesn't last. Have a Chemical Guy spray in the garage to try......

    I hear good things about Chemical Guy stuff. How's the price point?

    Same with mine, no shade at my place.

    This is why I thought your Chopper stuff might be good. Not a lot of trees around runways....

    Walmart no longer carries the refill, so not going to keep using it. But I want black and clean tires, so once I get them cleaned off, I will try the Chemical Guy stuff to see what happens. I have a feeling that "mall crawler" black and "trail rides" don't want to co-exist!

    I've heard the tire black will make the dirt stick but does it make it come off any easier?

    We never know. It's all up to the rice. Tomorrow could be my last day or I could be here through July.

    I'm good to stay through July. I get per diem on top of flight pay so the longer the better.

    Texas dirt is apparently" special. When I sunk in HF mud, it washed off the body, tires, and wheels with relative ease! But the underneath, took may tries to get it off.

    After the trail ride, I thought it was mostly dust and caliche, took forever to get it out of the engine, tires, bed (not done), but the wheels and tires it just stays on!

    I'm familiar. I've still got Jambo mud everywhere lol

    Moab mud rinsed off when the snow melted on the way home and what was left came off with the hose. Hell the Jambo mud dyed the white lettering on my tires orange.

    I’ve been using this lately. I do wipe it in pretty well, but it’s the best I’ve found. Even with my .25 mile gravel driveway my tires stay looking good and clean again easy.

    I know it's a truck. But it's red. Like a fire engine. And he likes to keep his fire engine clean. It's a clean machine!

    Might have to give it a try

    I know what you mean. When mine is all cleaned to a black mirror it looks damn good, snaps a few necks.

    lol I'll have to get a pic

    I'd take one for you tomorrow but I'm driving the Jeep right now. I only have 2k left on the warranty and still need to get my engine/metal shavings issue looked at.
