    I normally use Stoner's Tire Shine, but I was all out and I happened to have a can of A-A. Now my tires are shit brown :mad:.

    Anyway to turn them black again or am I fucked?

    First month of ownership... This month I'm removing front air dam, and also Rhino lining the bed.
    A long time ago, in the 1970's when it was first introduced,without constant re-application it caused the padded dashes to crack/deteriorate when exposed to UV rays. They ended up having to pay off a lot of their customers and eventually changed the formula. Now, the way armor all actually works is that it brings moisture to the surface from within the rubber, thus drying the rubber out over time.

    Use 303 Protectant. Apply it right over the Armor-All. Should be fine.

    I've found the best thing is not to put any of that greasy stuff on tires. Just wash with soap and water...they stay black and always look new.

    Thats why i like Stoner's. It's not greasy and it leaves your tires with a satin black finish, not shiney or greasy like other brands... and it dosnt leave your tires brown!!!

    Am I missing anything?
