PROPER PREPARATION IS THE KEY TO A LASTING FINISH!
DO NOT CLEAN SURFACES IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT OR WHEN HOT.
WASH AND SCRUB UNTIL THE TIRES ARE PERFECTLY CLEAN FROM ALL DIRT AND OILS. This ensures that the tire/trim is properly prepared for the TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat finish. TUF SHINE will stick to rubber, but it will not stick to silicone. That’s why this initial cleaning process is so important. Investing the extra time to properly clean the tires/trim will yield excellent results.
The tire should have a dull black look when properly cleaned.
Applying Tire Clearcoat
1. Wear gloves to protect skin as it is difficult to remove from skin and nails.
Shake well. Apply to COOL, DRY surfaces only. DO NOT APPLY IN DIRECT SUNLIGHT, OR IN COLD TEMPERATURES BELOW 5O DEGREES F.
Open and press dispenser nozzle into the sponge and dispense a small amount into the applicator sponge to prime the sponge.
Apply a smooth even coat. Follow the circular pattern of the tire. Smooth out any runs. If any black residue is drawn onto wheels or paint, wipe off immediately with a damp towel. Allow the product to dry between coats. Liberal applications of 2nd and 3rd coats may be needed. Draw out any runs. Dried on product can be removed with rubbing alcohol on a soft slightly damp cloth.
2. When done applying the Tire Clearcoat, rinse applicator sponge thoroughly with water for future use.
3. Apply 2 or more coats of TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat for additional shine and protection.
Care for the tires as you would the car’s paint. Use clear water and a soft car wash brush or mild soap and water for heavier dirt and mud. This will prolong the finish. Re-apply TUF SHINE Tire Clearcoat as needed for the desired shine level.
